The world-class airline Qatar Airways has recently announced that it would be providing free laptops to all its passengers travelling to United States in business class.
The offer has been provided for the travellers, weeks after Donald Trump put a ban on big electronic devices on flights bound to the US. The ban on direct flights to US was imposed on 10 airports in Turkey and seven Middle Eastern countries.
Qatar Airways in its statement said that the offer would be available starting next week.
“The computers would be collected by US-bound passengers from their departure gate just before boarding.”
Akbar Al-Baker the chief of airline said;
“By providing this laptop loan service we can ensure that our passengers on flights to the US can continue to work whilst on board.”
The similar laptop-loaning proposal is also under consideration by Emirates, which is also affected by the ban. Similarly, Abu Dhabi’s Etihad Airways has announced that it would offer free WiFi and tablet computers to first and business class passengers on the US based flights.
