Turkey’s flag carrier, Turkish Airlines, announced that after the electronics ban lifted on flights to United States, the same ban was lifted on its UK bound flights.
Britain joined the United States in imposing restrictions on carry-on electronic devices on planes coming from certain countries in the Middle East and Africa in March, in response to unspecified security threats.
Passengers now can carry all their concerned devices at cabin during their flight.
The electronic ban concerning electronic devices that was implemented on UK arrival flights since March has ended on Friday. While the United States ended its ban earlier in July, Britain has kept the restrictions in place until now.
Passengers will now be allowed to carry laptops and tablets on Turkish Airlines flights from Istanbul's Ataturk and Sabiha Gokcen airports, and Pegasus Airline flights from Sabiha Gokcen and Izmir, Britain's Department for Transport said in a statement.
