Jika anda akan melancong ke USA atau UK dalam masa terdekat dan akan datang, anda kena pastikan yang handphone, laptop atau tablet anda ada cukup bateri atau anda tak akan dibenarkan berlepas. Lebih teruk lagi, anda akan dilayan sebagai “pengganas” menurut laman The Telegraph.
Jadi pastikan anda bawa powerbank yang cukup bateri, beli yang 10000 mAh ke atas untuk pastikan bekalan bateri anda mencukupi.
Ini saya petik berita dari The Telegraph.
British Airways said its move was based on advice from the US authorities. However, the Government only advised that a flat electronic device would not be allowed on the plane and made no mention of passengers themselves being refused travel. It raises the prospect of travellers who are told they cannot fly because their device is flat having their details passed to US security officials.
The move caused confusion at airports on Monday.
At Heathrow, airport staff were advising travellers that if they turn up at security with flat batteries they could go back to the departure lounge to charge them or post the device on to their destination.
One aviation expert said last night that the new regulations went much further than the restrictions imposed on liquids and gels after a major terror plot in 2006 and would create a “debacle” at airports.
Philip Baum, from the Green Light Aviation Security consultancy firm, said: “The terrorists must be sitting there laughing their heads off. We are going to be in a situation where people are having their bags taken off planes because their phone battery has gone dead.
“Everyone gets delayed and it is likely to increase the chances of having frustrated and disruptive passengers, which is the last thing operators want.
“Is anyone who has a flat battery now going to be seen as a terrorist?”
Airport security around direct flights to the US was stepped up last week amid fears that Ibrahim Hassan al – Asiri, the master bombmaker from al–Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP), has developed a new type of explosive.
Jadi pastikan anda ada powerbank yang dicaj sebelum melancong ke USA atau UK. Etihad Airways pun dah inform pelanggan mereka, jadi berita ni memang sahih.
