The US laptop ban that Turkish Airlines and Emirates Airlines ordered back in March has been removed.
Amid the intercontinental tensions that have continued throughout Trump’s presidency, his travel bans, as well as the multiple terrorist attacks that have ravaged the world in 2017, the nation banned laptops from being in the cabins of planes operated by these two airlines.
The airlines were chosen due to the fact that the two companies cater to a number of countries that have been linked with terrorist activity caused by groups of extremists that represent only a small portion of these nations’ populations instead of their people as a whole.
The ban was designed to avoid explosive devices being disguised as laptops. However, the ban has been revoked and passengers can once again carry their laptops with them as they travel great lengths in sheer boredom.
Saudia — which is the carrier for Saudi Arabia — will have the ban lifted from the US starting July 19, the company said in a statement.
