July 9, 2014 – Britain has further increased the number of flights to which additional security measures apply overnight.

The step change further emphasises that real and credible nature of a threat to civil aviation which first emerged last week. Authorities are apparently concerned about a new improvised explosive device which may be artfully disguised as a mobile phone, tablet or laptop computer.

The Department for Transport (DfT) has declined to comment on the routes affected but they’re thought to include flights to and from some parts of Asia, Middle East and Africa as well as direct flights into the United States of America.

This is a significant change to measures which came into forces eight days ago and which only affected those services bound directly to the USA.

DfT officials say that passengers on the affected flights must ensure that any electronic device they’re carrying is fully charged and capable of being powered on at the point of departure.

Anyone travelling with a flat device will be required to surrender it or be banned from the flight.
