Emirates, Turkish Airlines get off US laptop ban

Following the lifting of the laptop ban on Etihad Airways’ flights from Abu Dhabi International Airport earlier this week, Emirates and Turkish Airlines have now joined the list.

Emirates said it worked with the US authorities to meet the requirements for lifting the ban on its flights, while Turkish Airlines is now allowing passengers on US-bound flights to take their laptops and electronic devices with them.

The latest announcement leaves Qatar, Morocco, Jordan, Egypt, Saudi Arabia and Kuwait waiting to have the ban lifted.

Update: Qatar Airways was removed from the list of airlines subject to the ban shortly after press time
