Qatar Airways will offer free laptops on flights to US
Qatar Airways announced that it will “loan” laptops to Business and First Class passengers flying to US, in response to the electronics ban.
The carrier said in a statement that customers will be able to use their own devices right up until they arrive at the boarding gate, where “they will be able to download their work on to a USB before stepping on board to pick up where they left off”.
Qatar Airways will also offer one hour of free wifi for all passengers and a $5 package for travelers who want to stay connected on their smartphones for the whole flight.
Other Gulf carriers, such as Emirates and Etihad Airways, are planning to offer similar services.
The US Administration banned passengers from carrying electronic devices larger than a smartphone on direct incoming flights from eight Muslim-majority countries.
