Nintendo Switch and other large electronic devices are banned on some US-Bound flights

According to the recent temporary law, the Transportation Security Administration will no longer allow the use of Nintendo Switch and other large electronic devices on many US-Bound flights. CBS reported, “The ban went into effect overnight Tuesday, but carriers have through Friday to comply.”

The ban will comply on 10 airports spread across eight nations including the United Arab Emirates, Jordan, Egypt, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Morocco, and Qatar. Passengers won’t be allowed to carry electronic devices larger than smartphones. Which means electronics including Nintendo Switch, laptops, iPads, Kindles and others are no longer allowed on the US-Bound flights.

A senior Trump administration officials told The Guardian, “The ban had been brought in after “evaluated intelligence” emerged that terrorists favored “smuggling explosive devices in various consumer items”.




Some technology experts are criticizing this law since electronic devices like laptops and tablets are the big part of their profession. “If you’re worried about hacking, a cell phone is a computer.”

Nintendo Switch is supposed to provide the same living room gameplay experience whenever and wherever you want. It seems it is no longer possible for some US-Bound passengers.

Stay tuned for the update.
