Important Notification

08 July 2014

British Airways have been advised by the US Transportation Security Administration of additional security regulations for your customers on their inbound flight to the United States. 

All British Airways flights continue to operate as normal but customers may be subject to additional searches and questions. British Airways are asking customers to arrive in good time for the various stages of their journey, including check-in, main security search areas and at the boarding gate.

The main change is that customers with any electronic or battery powered devices (mobile telephones, tablets, e-books, laptops, etc.) may be required to turn on their device in front of security teams and/or demonstrate the item’s functionality.

If, when asked to do so, customers are not able to demonstrate that their device has power, they will not be allowed to fly on their planned service.

It will not be possible for customers to place the item in their hand or hold luggage - they will have to leave the item behind or rebook an alternative flight.

Customers will still be able to use their electronic devices on board subject to the normal operating rules. Please click here
 for the British Airways guide on how you can use electronic items on board.

The safety and security of customers remains the top priority at all times and British Airways continue to work very closely with governments and airports around the world.

Advice for customers:

Please do all you can to ensure that items you bring with you are fully powered before you arrive at the airport.

If you are flying to the US as a transfer customer, especially on long journeys, please make sure that you do not deplete the power in your devices while on the first part of your journey. There will be very limited charging points at airports.

Please do not bring any broken devices in your hand luggage to the airport as you will not be able to fly as planned.

Please make sure you arrive in good time for the various stages of your journey, including check-in, main security search areas and at the boarding gate.

Please keep checking ba.com for any additional information regarding your specific flights.
