Australia considering laptop flight ban – Telegraph.co.uk
European aviation security experts are meeting this week in Brussels to consider possible responses to the reportedly imminent escalation.
Margaritis Schinas, an European Commission spokesman, said on Monday that the high-level talks are “to jointly assess any new threats and work toward a common approach to address them.”
Elaine Duke, the department of homeland security deputy secretary, is expected to lead the US delegation.
The extended ban would affect trans-Atlantic routes that carry as many as 65 million people a year on over 400 daily flights, including business travelers who use laptops to work in-flight.
