Jordan’s national airline has joined other Middle Eastern countries in lifting a ban on laptops in airplane cabins after complying with U.S. security guidelines.
The U.S. imposed the ban in March over concerns Islamic State fighters and other extremists could hide bombs inside of laptops.
The ban banned laptops from airplane cabins on direct, U.S.-bound flights from 10 cities in the Middle East and Turkey.
Royal Jordan operates 16 weekly non-stop flights to Chicago, New York and Detroit.
