Transport Minister Simon Bridges doesn't expect a big New Zealand shift Aircraft laptop ban's stance on laptops in Aircraft cabins.

Australia is considering following the lead of Britain and the United States in bannin  g equipment bigger than cellphones from certain flights departing from the Middle East and North Africa. There are signs that the US may extend the ban to flights departing from the European Union.

Bridges said that while the director of the Civil Aviation Authority is reviewing the policy and will make the final call, this country wouldn't be overly swayed by what was happening internationally.

"The CAA director has ultimate responsibility and is working his way based on the evidence but I don't expect to see big lurches in our settings," Bridges told the Herald. "We pride ourselves as being predictable and evidence-based in New Zealand."

The US and Britain imposed different bans in March, in response to unspecified terrorist threats.
