US Authorities have announced that electronic devices, including laptop computers, tablets and cameras, would not be allowed in the main cabin on non-stop flights operated by nine foreign airlines and bound to the United States from 10 airports in Cairo, Istanbul, Kuwait City, Doha, Casablanca, Amman, Riyadh, Jeddah, Dubai and Abu Dhabi.
The foreign airlines are Royal Jordanian, Egypt Air, Royal Maroc, Qatar, Emirates, Turkish, Saudi Arabian, Etihad and Kuwait Airways.
This policy is in effect immediately and is in effect indefinitely. Travelers should anticipate major delays when undergoing security checks.
The UK has put in a similar policy for flights arriving into the UK with a few differences with regard to airlines and country-of-origin.
