Mobile devices face extra checks on US-bound flights

New security checks on all electronic devices such as laptops, iPads, mobile phones etc. are now in force on flights to the US.

Portable electronic devices that cannot be switched on will not be allowed on any US-bound flight.

US-bound passengers are advised to keep their mobile devices charged otherwise they could risk having them confiscated at security.

In spite of the new security procedures, Gatwick Airport is operating as normal, although passengers should allow extra time to pass through security.
