The US Transportation Security Administration (TSA) said it had lifted the ban on passengers coming from airlines from several Middle Eastern countries to take laptops into the cabin.
Two weeks ago, the United States lifted the ban on the plane from Abu Dhabi and days later lifted the ban on Turkish and UAE planes, and now lifted the ban on aircraft from Saudi Arabia.
The lifting of the ban comes four months after the United States banned large electronic devices such as laptops in the cabin on flights from several countries in the Middle East for security reasons.
The ban included airports in Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Egypt, Jordan, Kuwait, Morocco, Turkey and two airports from Saudi Arabia. The Department of Homeland Security has begun studying banning flights from Europe as well.
The authorities say the lifting of the ban came after airlines and airports applied new safety and security measures, but it is interesting to note that King Khalid Airport in Riyadh is not covered by lifting the ban now. The required procedures are expected to be evaluated this week. Grandmother.
The United States requires airlines to install explosive device surveillance and tracking devices, and there is a 120-day deadline for additional safety and security measures. The United States fears the use of laptops, cameras and other electronics as tools to hide explosive materials inside.
The new security measures at international airports will affect 325,000 passengers on 2,000 flights to the United States each day from 180 airlines and 280 airports in 105 countries around the world.
