ISTANBUL (Reuters) – Shares in Turkish Airlines, budget airline Pegasus and airports operator TAV fell on Wednesday after the United States and Britain imposed restrictions on carry-on electronic devices on flights from destinations including Turkey.

Turkish Airlines <THYAO.IS> was down 2.26 percent at 0714 GMT, while Pegasus <PGSUS.IS> fell 1.02 percent and TAV <TAVHL.IS> dropped 1.43 percent.

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security said on Tuesday passengers traveling from specific airports including Istanbul could not bring into the main cabin devices larger than a mobile phone such as tablets, laptops and cameras.
