Royal Jordanian Airlines reportedly bans all electronic devices from carry-on luggage

Royal Jordanian Bans Devices

Royal Jordanian Bans Devices

Royal Jordanian says in a tweet that following "instructions from the concerned U.S. departments", passengers on Royal Jordanian's flights to and from the United States of America are prohibited from "carrying any electronic device on board the flight cabins" effective 21 March. "Cellular phones and medical devices needed during the flight are excluded from the ban".

"Prohibited devices" like laptops, cameras, DVD players and video-game consoles could only be carried with checked luggage, the airline said.

US authorities have issued a carry-on ban on electronics and liquids on airlines departing to and arriving from 13 countries in the Middle East and Africa.

At least 12 Middle Eastern and African airlines will be affected "new security procedures", reported CNN aviation correspondent Jon Ostrower, citing a USA official.

The edict was distributed by the US Transportation Safety Administration on Monday, with immediate effect, the Guardian reported.

Royal Jordanian flies to New York's John F. Kennedy International Airport, Chicago's O'Hare International Airport, as well Montreal and Detroit. The tweet was deleted several hours later.

A spokesperson for Homeland Security would not comment on the potential security precautions, but said the department would "provide an update when appropriate".

The full list of 13 nations has not been released, but Jordan's Royal Jordanian and Saudi Arabia's Saudia airliners are included in the ban.

Just another careful, well-executed policy implementation involving airports and the Middle East from the Trump administration.

But it's not known which countries or airlines the directive will apply to, or how the ban will be enforced. IATA did not immediately comment.
