The U.S. government has lifted the laptop ban for flights to the U.S. for three major airlines.
Effective immediately, Etihad Airways, Emirates Airline and Turkish Airlines have all been cleared to allow customers bring electronic devices, including laptops, tablets and e-readers, on flights from the Middle East into the U.S..
The department of Homeland Security initiated the ban in March.
It came into effect covering all flights to U.S. destinations from 10 airports in the Middle East, including major travel hubs like Dubai, Abu Dabi and Dohar.
Emirates said in a statement: “Effective immediately, the electronics ban has been lifted for Emirates’ flights from Dubai International Airport to the USA.”
