US officials to check Emirates, Qatar Airways and Turkish Airlines comply with new security measures
The new US security measures, which take effect within three weeks of the announcement, will affect around 325,000 passengers a day travelling on 180 airlines from 280 airports around the world, according to the US Department of Homeland Security.
Qatar Airways today joined Emirates, Turkish Airlines and EtihadAirways in announcing a lifting of the USA laptop ban on their flights. QatarAirways has today announced that it too has been exempted from the ban which affected its flights from Hamad International Airport, Doha.
In a statement, Qatar Airways said it and the airport had both complied with new security requirements laid down earlier this year by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.
Qatar Airways has confirmed it has been removed from the ban on carrying laptops in the cabin on flights to the United States.
The ban was imposed in March on direct flights to the USA from eight mainly Muslim countries following fears that bombs could be concealed in the devices. Qatar Airways has long considered American Airlines to be a good oneworld Alliance partner, and looks forward to continuing this relationship.
Qatar Airways' CEO, Akbar Al Baker, said last month the company is scheduling more flights to other destinations to make up for the lost business. In the last week of March, the United States administration had imposed a ban on carriage of personal electronic items, bigger than a mobile phone, onboard flights in carry on baggage. Passengers flying to the U.S. from those airports can only take mobile phones into the aircraft cabin.
Other airports and carriers are still affected by the USA ban, including those in Cairo, Kuwait and Morocco.
