Laptop Ban No Longer Applies on Emirates Flights to US


Emirates has announced the cabin ban on laptops no longer applies on its flights to the US.

In March, the US banned cabin laptops and other large electronic devices to and from eight mostly Muslim nations, fearing bombs may be concealed in them.

A spokeswoman for the airline said it had worked with US authorities to meet the requirements of the new security guidelines for all US bound flights.

The move comes after the US lifted the laptop ban on July 2 for Etihad flights from Abu Dhabi to the US.

The Turkish Airlines chief has said he expects the ban to be lifted for his airline soon as well.

Under the US rules, devices “larger than a smartphone” were not allowed in the cabins of flights from Turkey, Morocco, Jordan, Egypt, the United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and Kuwait.

The US Homeland Security department unveiled further measures last week to enhance security on flights entering the country.

The new measures require enhanced screening, more thorough vetting of passengers and the wider use of bomb-sniffer dogs in 105 countries.
