RJ will implement these new arrangements as of March 26, 2017. By taking these measures, the airline spares passengers the hassle of having to go through legal procedures in London Heathrow. The ban excludes the flights from London to Amman.

RJ calls upon its passengers traveling to London to abide by these instructions to facilitate their travel. They are also requested to inform airport check-in staff of any prohibited devices- which are still in their possession- in order to be placed in their checked baggage before heading to the boarding gate.
