You can bring hot drinks on board if you’ve bought them at the airport and they have a lid on.

The 100ml liquid limit doesn’t apply to baby food or milk but the airport security team may ask you to taste it at the bag search area. (See also: Flying with children.)

The UK government has made a decision to introduce a cabin baggage ban on laptops and tablets.
The new security measures affecting easyJet flights from Egypt & Turkey from 22 March means that passengers on affected flights will be asked to pack large personal electronics such as kindles, e-readers, tablets and laptops into the hold bags. They will no longer be permitted in the cabin baggage.
