BA has posted on its web site (but not as a press release) an important message concerning new security requirements from the UK and US Governments.
All British Airways flights continue to operate as normal and the airlines advise's 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. Customers may be subject to additional searches and questions.
Passengers may be asked to turn on any electrical- or battery-powered devices such as telephones, tablets, e-books and laptops in front of security teams and/or demonstrate the item's functionality.
If, when asked to do so, you are unable to demonstrate that your device has power, the device will not be allowed to travel. BTN has not checked out landside power points at T5 but there are unlikely to be available for the public at least in the short-term.
If you are flying as a transfer customer, especially those on long journeys, BA advises not to deplete power in your devices while on the first part of your journey. There are very limited charging points at airports airside too.
Customers are still able to use their electronic devices on board subject to the normal operating rules. www.ba.com www.gov.uk/government/news/aviation-security-update
