Thomas Cook Airlines – airport security advice - As has been reported, new security requirements have been introduced that will affect some routes in and out of the UK, with increased security checks anticipated at some airports in the UK as well as overseas. We continue to work with the authorities at the airports we use on matters relating to security, and are advising customers to ensure that all electronic devices taken on board a flight in hand luggage are fully charged before departing from home and for their return journey. We would also advise customers to allow extra time to pass through security as a result of these measures.
In instances such as these, we follow the advice of the relevant Government
DfT guidance as per the link: www.gov.uk/hand-luggage-restrictions/electronic-devices-and-electrical-items
We are working with Swissport to ensure our customers do not experience baggage delays at Gatwick, and we are aware that they have recently reviewed staffing levels at the airport.
