Qatar Airways offers laptop loan service for US-bound flights
Doha, March 31, 2017

A week into the large carry-on electronics ban, the Middle Eastern carriers are going all out to up one another. First there was Royal Jordanian's tongue-in-cheek social media posts, then there was Emirates' gate-check service for laptops and tablets.

Now, Qatar Airways is providing a complimentary laptop loan service for its business class passengers on all US-bound flights from next week. The loan device will be provided to passengers after boarding.



Qatar Airways Group chief executive, Akbar Al Baker, said; “By providing this laptop loan service we can ensure that our passengers on flights to the US can continue to work whilst on-board.”


The airline is offering a special service to collect all prohibited electronic items at the gate for all passengers. These will be securely packaged, tagged, loaded as check-in baggage and returned safely to the customer on arrival in the US.


Qatar Airways is also providing one hour of free Wi-Fi for all passengers and a special Wi-Fi package of US$5 on board US-bound flights.
