Jordan: Electronic carry-on ban lifted for Royal Jordanian airline

Electronic carry-on ban lifted for direct flights to US from Jordan July 9

10 juill. 09h40 UTC
TIMEFRAME expected from 10/7/2017, 12h00 until 10/7/2017, 11h59 (Asia/Amman). COUNTRY/REGION Jordan

Event

Royal Jordanian announced on Sunday, July 9, that the ban on laptops and other electronics in cabins on direct flights to the United States had been lifted. Kuwait Airways also announced the lifting of the ban for its flights on the same day.

These airlines join Etihad Airways, Qatar Airways, Emirates, and Turkish Airlines, who announced the lifting of the ban for their airlines last week following the implementation of increased security measures. Saudi Arabian Airlines has also announced it hopes to be off the ban list on or before July 19.

Context

In March 2017 , a measure went into effect that prevented passengers flying directly to the United States from ten Middle Eastern and North African airports from transporting any electronic devices larger than a "normal sized" smartphone (16 cm x 9.3 cm x 1.5 cm / 6.3 in x 3.5 in x 0.6 in) in carry-on luggage. Laptops, tablets, e-readers, cameras, DVD players, and video games must be transported in checked luggage if flying to the US from these airports.

As a reminder, the restrictions were initially implemented at the following ten airports:

  • Queen Alia International Airport (AMM) in Amman, Jordan
  • Cairo International Airport (CAI) in Egypt
  • Atatürk International Airport (IST) in Istanbul, Turkey
  • King Abdulaziz International Airport (JED) in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia
  • King Khalid International Airport (RUH) in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia
  • Kuwait International Airport (KWI)
  • Mohammed V International Airport (CMN) in Casablanca, Morocco
  • Hamad International Airport (DOH) in Doha, Qatar
  • Dubai International Airport (DXB) in the United Arab Emirates
  • Abu Dhabi International Airport (AUH) in the United Arab Emirates

Advice

Travelers are advised to contact their airline for more information.
