Airport Security

Devices must be charged

Jul 2014

The TSA will no longer allow electronic devices such as cellphones, tablets and laptops on some US bound flights if the devices are not charged. Smartphones from Apple and Samsung are singled out  for extra checks. The new security measure has been put in place because of concerns that Yemen based al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula and the Islamic Nursa Front are plotting to blow up an aircraft. As a result of the new security measure, Airplane passengers may be asked to turn on their electronic devices when going through security. Devices with no power will not be allowed on the plane.
