Posted 9 July 2017 · Add Comment

The electronic devices ban has been lifted for Royal Jordanian's flights from Amman's Queen Alia International Airport to the U.S. effective from today. RJ joins Etihad, Emirates, Qatar and Turkish in having the "laptop ban" rescinded

RJ President/CEO Stefan Pichler said: “Enhanced security measures are now implemented to meet the requirements of the US Department of Homeland Security’s new security guidelines for all US bound flights.” 

He added: “We are glad that our guests can now fly onboard RJ and use their electronic devices. We highly appreciate our passengers’ patience and understanding during the time of the ban.”

On March 24 this year, passengers flying from Amman directly to the US were banned from carrying electronic and electrical devices in the aircraft cabin. The United States imposed the ban on direct flights originating at 10 airports in eight countries: Egypt, Morocco, Jordan, the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Qatar and Turkey.

Royal Jordanian operates 16 weekly non-stop flights to three U.S cities: daily flights to each of Chicago and New York, and two weekly flights to Detroit.

Saudia is hopinng to have the ban on its flights lifted within the next 10 days
