U.S. and UK laptop bans come into effect
Devices "larger than a smartphone" must travel in the hold because of an increased risk that they could contain explosives. The U.S. ban covers eight countries, while the UK restrictions apply to six.
Nine airlines from eight countries - Turkey, Morocco, Jordan, Egypt, the United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and Kuwait - are affected by the U.S. ban.
The UK ban affects all flights out of Egypt, Turkey, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Tunisia and Lebanon. ■
