UK Department for Transport Advice for Carrying Electronic Devices

The UK Department for Transport has extended its advice regarding the carriage of electronic devices on board aircraft to now include ‘other unspecified routes into and out of the UK’. This follows the changes widely reported last week concerning the carriage of electronic devices by passengers flying to the United States only.

Flybe passengers are therefore advised to make sure that any electronic devices in their hand luggage are fully charged before they travel so that they are able to be powered up otherwise there is the possibility they will not be allowed to take the device onto the aircraft.

Please note that, as with other items of hand luggage confiscated by airport authorities for safety and security reasons, neither airports nor airlines have the facility to store such items.

Cabin Bag Questions

Will the size of my bag be checked?

Baggage sizers are provided at the check-in to ensure that your cabin bag is within your permitted allowance. Should your cabin bag exceed these dimensions, it will be required to be placed in the hold and standard airport hold baggage charges will apply. A £50 charge will be levied for any oversized bag checked in at the departure gate. Should your cabin bag exceed the permitted weight allowance, it will be placed in the hold and standard airport hold luggage charges will apply. Where allowances are exceeded, excess baggage charges may apply, full details of which can be found here. Any cabin bag items containing sharp items must be checked into the aircraft hold. Please ensure to check your cabin bag prior to travel to ensure no charge is levied.

What if I’m carrying any sharp items?

Any cabin bag items containing sharp items must be checked into the aircraft hold. Please ensure to check your cabin bag prior to travel to ensure no charge is levied.
