In line with the UK government’s directive, we can confirm that we are currently making changes to the carriage of electronic devices on our aircraft. For Thomson, First Choice and Thomson Cruises customers this only affects travel back to the UK from Egypt, Turkey and Jordan.
It means only ‘normal sized’ (smaller than 16cm in length, 9.3cm in width and 1.5cm in depth) mobile or smart phones can be carried in hand luggage. Any other phones, laptops, tablets or kindles larger than the stated dimensions, must be checked into hold luggage. To help us speed up the security check process on the affected routes we ask customers to keep their hand luggage to a minimum.
We recognise the inconvenience that this change may cause to our customers and apologise for this, but we appreciate their patience and understanding at this time as we continue to put the safety of everyone travelling with us first.
