The U.S. ban on notebooks and tablets in the cabin of certain inbound international flights may be extended to European countries, including the UK. Any electronic device larger than a phone would have to be placed in hold baggage.

The ban, which currently extends to flights from 10 airports, mostly from the Middle East and North Africa, was introduced last month with the Department of Homeland Security stating that it was in response to intelligence suggesting that terrorists planned to smuggle explosives inside certain consumer electronics.

A new report from The Guardian has stated that the Trump administration is “considering” extending the ban to inbound flights from Europe.
