EgyptAir is the latest Middle East airline to allow passengers to bring personal electronic devices (PEDs) larger than mobile phones into the cabin on US-bound flights.

EgyptAir Holding chairman and CEO Safwat Musallam said the ban lift is effective July 12. However, he said, “The ban continues on EgyptAir flights to London.”

The Star Alliance member said Egyptian Minister of Civil Aviation Sherif Fathi welcomed the latest US directives and measures lifting the electronic devices ban on EgyptAir’s daily flights to New York JFK.

Fathi added the Ministry has been working in coordination with Cairo International Airport to implement new security measures on flights to New York.

In March, the US imposed the PED ban on direct flights originating at 10 airports in eight countries: Egypt, Morocco, Jordan, the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Qatar and Turkey, citing unspecified terrorism concerns. The UK followed suit 24 hours later, but with a slightly different set of affected airports.

EgyptAir operates daily flights from Cairo to New York JFK and London Heathrow.
