UK lifts the electronic ban on Royal Jordanian flights bound to London Heathrow

2017-08-06

Amman, August 4, 2017 - The UK authorities lifted the electronic ban that was imposed on larger phones, laptops and tablets in the cabin on Royal Jordanian flights from Queen Alia International Airport (QAIA) to the UK.

Effective August 4, 2017, Royal Jordanian passengers are allowed to carry these electronic devices in the cabin.

The UK government’s decision to lift the ban required carriers to apply additional security measures for UK-bound flights.

On March 26 this year, passengers flying directly from Jordan, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Tunis and Lebanon to the UK were banned from carrying above mentioned devices in the aircraft cabin.

Royal Jordanian extends its appreciation to its guests for their understanding at the time of the electronic ban. It also calls upon its passengers to cooperate with RJ and the airport authorities to easily implement the additional security measures, in order to guarantee flight punctuality.

The airline runs daily flights between Amman and London on its Boeing 787 with 270 seats.
