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.
The full aviation security update on the Gov.UK website can be found on the following link: https://www.gov.uk/government/news/aviation-security-update
You will be presented with the option of either entering a flight number, which can be found on your confirmation e-mail, boarding pass or mobile boarding pass or entering either the departure or arrival airport
If your flight has been cancelled, this will be indicated in the ‘Status’ column with a link to enable you to either amend or request a refund for the affected flight.
On the next step you will be required to retrieve your booking by entering your booking reference number, which can be found on your confirmation e-mail, boarding pass or mobile boarding pass, alongside your forename and surname.
On completion of this section, you will be presented with the options to either transfer to another flight free of charge or if you no longer wish to travel at a future date, you will be offered a refund on your original cancelled flight.
Please note that passengers who originally made their booking through a 3rd party (i.e. tour operator, travel agent or other airline website) should contact their booking agent to arrange rebooking or a refund.
Passengers whose flight has been cancelled can rebook for travel within 48 hours of the original time and date of travel. Changes can be made online, through the customer call centre or at the airport.
If you no longer wish to travel at a future date, you will be offered a refund of your original cancelled flight and the unflown return sector (if applicable), back to the original payment card.
