Hand luggage restrictions on flights to the UK
The new cabin/hand baggage security requirements affect flights from Turkey to the UK.
SunExpress will comply with the new security requirements from the UK government on its flights from Turkey to the UK.
Passengers flying from Turkey to the UK will be able to carry smart phones, tablets, e-readers and laptops only smaller than the following dimensions in the cabin: Length: 16 cm, Width: 9.3 cm and Depth: 1.5 cm.
The peripheral devices which can be attached to smart phones, tablets and laptops are also subject to the new security requirements. Some peripheral devices will not be allowed on board the aircraft at all.
Please refer to the UK Department for Transport’s website for more information.
Please make sure that any smart phones, tablets, e-readers and laptops or peripheral devices to be carried in your hold/checked baggage must be switched off before being checked-in.
The device must be completely switched off (not in sleep or hibernation mode), effectively protected from accidental activation and packed in protective packaging to prevent unintentional activation or damage.
To ensure the device is never powered on during its transport, any applications, alarms or pre-set configurations that may activate the device have to be disabled or deactivated.
Portable Electronic Devices/PADs placed in checked baggage have to be protected from damage and to prevent movement by applying suitable packaging or casing or by being placed in a rigid bag protected by adequate cushioning (e.g. clothing).
Carriage of power banks/packs, spare batteries, and portable electronic smoking devices (e.g. e-cigarettes, personal vaporizers) in checked baggage is currently forbidden.
Please arrive in good time for your flight.
You may be subject to additional searches, questions and may be called to the boarding gate earlier. Therefore, please do your best to help us depart the flight punctually.
