Just a heads up if you’re looking to fly from Europe to the United States, the Department of Homeland Security within the U.S. is looking to ban laptops in the cabins of all flights. European security officials made mention of Thursday’s expected announcement to The Daily Beast.
At first, the ban on laptops and tablets had applied only to U.S.-bound flights from 10 airports in North Africa and the Middle East. However, it is unclear if the European ban will also apply to tablets.
According to the DHS in a statement to The Daily Beast: “No final decisions have been made on expanding the restriction on large electronic devices in aircraft cabins; however, it is under consideration. DHS continues to evaluate the threat environment and will make changes when necessary to keep air travelers safe.”
