Actually looking again the UK ban just says flights from Turkey which suggests all Turkish airports.

That is unfortunately how we understand it, flights from Turkey, which would include all airports in Turkey.  Would be nice to get confirmation of it though.   Won't be happy if we can't take our tablet with us and certainly would not be putting it in our luggage.

I've asked Monarch via twitter to confirm Dalaman as soon as they can find out. Not looking good though. I have a £49 tablet which I will risk I think. Might have to buy one for the Mrs as well now.

The latest reports mentions flights to the UK from Turkey with other airlines also, Thomas Cook, Thomson, Easy Jet, jet 2, monarch and British airways are all mentioned. So no laptops etc in cabin, all have to go in the hold.

Oh well - we can take them out in the cabin at least. Kindle and cheap tablet for me this year. iPad mini can have a holiday at home  ;)

The Telegraph are just flagging up Istanbul Airport in their map, so, perhaps the other Turkish Airports will not be affected.?

BBC report says flights from Turkey - so that means no problem on flights to Turkey from UK? Would mean they'd have to go in the hold on the way back of course.

One problem is that expensive electronics (e.g. laptops, iPads etc) are often not covered by travel policies if put in the hold.

Bit of a nuisance for me but hey ho, the UK must have solid intel else why come up with the ban.  As regards the US ban, I haven't seen a cheep from any of the organisations/states that fought the travel ban so must assume the same for them.

 >:( A right pain in the proverbials for those of us who travel with hand baggage only!
