Royal Air Maroc US Laptop Ban to Be Lifted by July 19
Rabat – Royal Air Maroc (RAM) has announced that the cabin ban on laptops and large electronics on flights to the US will be lifted by July 19.

“Negotiations with the U.S. authorities are underway and we expect the ban to end by July 19 at the latest,” a RAM official said Thursday.

There is no word yet regarding the possible lifting of a similar ban put in place in the UK.

The ban was instituted by the US aviation industry in March, responding to concerns raised over bombs being placed in large electronic devices. It was targeted at primarily Muslim-majority countries, including Morocco.

Airlines from the United Arab Emirates, Turkey, and Qatar have also announced the lifting of the ban on their flights, with passengers en route to the US may now permitted their devices with them into the cabin.
