Air Tahiti Nui services departing from Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport to Los Angeles will be required to abide by new security directives from the United States Transportation Security Administration.
Effective immediately, customers departing Paris will be required to demonstrate that all electronic devices in their possession at the time of boarding, including telephones, tablets, laptops, e-books, game consoles, cameras and camcorders are in working order and functioning under battery power.
Checks will be made at the time of boarding, and equipment that is defective or not functioning will not be permitted aboard the aircraft.
Air Tahiti Nui General Manager New Zealand Mark Hutchinson said the security measures would only apply on the airline’s flights from Paris to Los Angeles and there had been no impact to flight schedules.
Meanwhile, it is recommended that passengers keep their battery chargers in their cabin baggage should they need to charge their equipment prior to boarding their flight.
