Royal Jordanian reports new electronics ban on USA flights

It's also unclear for how long this ban will remain in effect.

Citing instructions from "concerned U.S. departments", Royal Jordanian Airlines has reportedly banned all electronic or electrical devices from carry-on luggage on flights to and from New York, Chicago, Detroit and Montreal effective Tuesday, March 21. The tweet was deleted several hours later.

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.

The ban is said to be for a limited period which was not specified.

A spokesperson for the Department of Homeland Security didn't deny there is a directive, but declined to comment.

The Royal Jordanian tweet specifically mentions laptops, cameras, DVD players, and gaming devices as banned at the request of "the concerned United States departments".

The Guardian reported that the the U.S. Transportation Security Administration, which oversees security at airports, distributed a confidential circular Monday to airlines from 13 nations, requiring passengers to check laptops, iPads, Kindles and cameras larger than cell phones. It's unclear which countries and airlines are actually affected by this, for example.

The official told CNN that there is a security concern regarding passengers boarding non-stop flights to the US from some specific countries.

"This story is very much still developing", air travel expert Ben Schlappig, who runs the One Mile at a Time travel blog, wrote.

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.

Among the airlines affected, however, are Saudia and Royal Jordanian - which tweeted the notice it received from US authorities nearly immediately after receiving it. Delta Air Lines and United Airlines, the only two USA carriers which operate to the Middle East, decline to comment. IATA did not immediately comment.
