The electronics ban between the US and the Middle East and North Africa is almost completely gone!
A couple days ago I told you that 3 more airlines became exempt from the ban. And by tomorrow, EgyptAir and Royal Air Maroc will also no longer be affected!
Here are the details, and a quick reminder about the US electronics ban.
EgyptAir and Royal Air Maroc No Longer Affected by Electronics Ban
I let you know when the Department of Homeland Security restricted folks from bringing certain personal electronic devices into the airplane for flights to the US from the Middle East and North Africa. And I’ve been trying to keep y’all updated as the ban develops!
As of today, EgyptAir will no longer be affected by the ban. And starting tomorrow, Royal Air Maroc will be exempt, too!
That means Saudia is the only airline still affected by the ban. So for folks flying Saudia, you still won’t be able to carry-on:
- E-Readers (like Kindles)
- Portable DVD players
- Electronic game units larger than a smartphone
- Travel printers or scanners
You can only carry-on phones and necessary medical equipment under the ban.
The electronics ban will soon no longer apply to both EgyptAir and Royal Air Maroc flights to the US from the Middle East and North Africa. This is great news for folks who like to get work done on their laptop, read e-books, or watch movies on personal devices in-flight!
Have you had experience with these airlines since the ban has been lifted?
