The Trump administration is considering barring passengers flying to the US from UK airports from taking laptops into the cabins, sources have told the Guardian.click this News


The proposed ban would be similar to one already imposed on travellers from several Middle Eastern countries.


British officials understand that their US counterparts are looking at extending the ban – which prevents any electronic devices larger than a
smartphone being taken as carry-on luggage – to flights from Europe.


One Whitehall source suggested to the Guardian that although it was not certain that the ban would be extended to the UK, the US was considering doing so.


The US government unexpectedly imposed the ban in late March for flights from 10 airports in the Middle East.
Passengers must stow their devices in checked-in baggage on flights from the affected airports in Egypt, Jordan, Kuwait, Morocco, Qatar, Turkey, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates.


All are close US allies and none are covered by the Trump administration’s attempts to ban travellers from six other mostly Muslim nations.

Hours after sending a “confidential” edict from the US Transportation Safety Administration (TSA) to airlines, the Trump administration hastily arranged a press briefing to explain that the ban had been imposed after “intelligence” emerged that terrorists favoured “smuggling explosive devices in various consumer items”. The TSA directive is understood to be valid until 14 October.

It was not immediately clear why US authorities might want to extend the ban on taking electronic devices such as tablets, e-readers and laptops to flights from European airports.
