Followed Etihad and Turkish Airlines, Qatar Airways has put security procedures in place to satisfy American authorities. Qatar Airways is getting off a US ban on laptops and large electronics in cabins.
Passengers travelling to the United States can now carry their laptop and other large electronics on board all departures from Hamad International Airport, the hub of Qatar Airways in Doha to destinations in the United States. The move ends a three months in-cabin ban on devices for Qatar Airways.
The US laptop ban still applies to non-stop US-bound flights from six airports in Amman, Jordan, Kuwait City, Cairo, Jeddah and Riyadh, Saudi Arabia and Casablanca.
