New TSA Security Directive Regarding Carry-on Electronic Device Advisory
Effective immediately, passengers traveling on any airline to the U.S. from select airports in Europe, the Middle East and Africa should expect additional security measures relative to carry-on items. All battery-operated electronic devices intended for carry-on must be operational; any device that cannot be powered on upon screening will not be permitted onboard. Passengers are encouraged to allow an additional 30-45 minutes at the airport to account for these additional screening requirements.
