Due to inside intelligence, those boarding international flights between Europe and the U.S are being exposed to more intrusive security checks. Passengers now must switch on any electronic devices when passing through security due to new information about the development of undetectable bombs.
It has also come to light that random checks will be put into place from 09/07/2014. Planes shall be chosen randomly for spot checks at the gate. Before boarding the plane you could be asked to switch on all electronic devices again.
Passing through security and potentially boarding your plane will now become a slower process. Make sure you arrive well ahead of the two or three hour window you are given before your flight departure and pack your electronic devices last, making them easily accessible when you’re asked to produce them.
