The prohibition of bringing a laptop into the aircraft cabin for flights from the Middle East and Africa region is indeed able to create exciting news, especially for prospective passengers from the region.

They feel the ban can reduce the sense of comfort in traveling, especially to the United States, of course, for various logical reasons.

The US government has carefully considered this policy, citing the sites CNN Indonesia, today, and has now lifted a ban on airplane passengers to bring laptops into the cabin, specifically for flights from Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates.

You've read the news about this, the prohibition of bringing laptops and other large electronic devices to the American government for flights to the US from nine airports in countries in the Middle East.

The decision was taken by the US government after Etihad airlines installed an additional security system at the airport, as written on the Telegraph website, Etihad is the only airline flying direct from the country to the US, with 45 flights per week.

The airline declared its approval with Trump's government request to carry out strict inspection procedures for all its passengers at Abu Dhabi International Airport before flying to the US.

Of course there are consequences of super tight security from the airline, and got approval from the US Transportation Security Administration, before the ban brought the laptop revoked.

Appropriate explanation from David Lapan, Spokesman of the US Department of Homeland Security in his interview with the sites.

"Etihad's effort to implement an extra security system is an example to be duplicated by other domestic and international airlines."

The explanation given by Lapan has been making headlines in media for some time, a ban on laptops being taken to the aircraft cabin for Middle Eastern airlines.

It has become a separate record for such airlines, such as Emirates and Qatar Airlines, as well as other international airlines flying from Egypt, Morocco, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Qatar and Turkey.
