The Department for Transport has been working closely with affected airlines and other relevant parties to ensure they are aware of the new security measures being introduced. We continue to liaise with and assist them in ensuring UK nationals are made aware of the impact of the new restrictions, and the actions they need to take. We would expect airlines affected by the US restrictions to provide their passengers with the necessary information needed to ensure compliance.
