EU demands urgent talks with Washington over airline laptop ban


Now, the Trump administration is considering expanding its ban on laptops to commercial US-bound flights from Europe.

Numerous flights are operated by US airlines such as Delta, United and American, or their European partners.

As it became known to Fox News, U.S. officials suggested the airlines to "be ready" to ensure that the ban on transportation electronics to be distributed on non-stop flights to the United States from other regions, including Europe.

European governments alarmed at a proposed expansion of the ban on inflight laptops and tablets to passenger planes from the EU were holding urgent talks on Friday with the US Department of Homeland Security (DHS). The UK imposed a similar ban shortly after, although its list of countries notably excluded the large hubs in Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Doha.

"No final decisions have been made on expanding the restriction on large electronic devices in aircraft cabins; however, it is under consideration", a DHS spokesperson said in a statement.

Writing in the Daily Beast, Clive Irving said that an announcement from Washington is expected on Thursday.

The move, which forces passengers to put their devices into checked baggage, came as counter-terror officials developed concerns that jihadist groups were devising bombs disguised as batteries in consumer electronics.

Earlier this year on March 21, the U.S. had prohibited travelers from carrying electronic devices bigger than the smartphone into the cabins of flights taking-off from eight countries.

The EU and the United States will hold talks next week on a possible USA airline ban on carry-on computers amid concerns it could cause massive disruption as the hectic summer travel season gets underway. Some U.S. and European airlines have been planning for a wider ban, industry officials have told Reuters.

Department of Homeland Security officials spoke with airline industry representatives about the electronics ban on Thursday, according to Homeland Security and industry sources.

US airlines say they still hope to have a say in how the policy is put into effect at airports to minimize inconvenience to passengers.
