Qatar Airways to offer free laptops on US-bound flights
The exciting offer by state-owned flag carrier of Qatar came weeks after Trump administration stopped electronic devices bigger than mobile phones from being taken on direct flights to the United States from 10 airports in seven Middle Eastern countries and Turkey.
'The computers would be collected by US-bound passengers from their departure gate just before boarding' said Qatar Airways adding that the offer would be available by next week.
'By providing this laptop loan service we can ensure that our passengers on flights to the US can continue to work whilst on board,' said the airline’s boss, Akbar Al-Baker.
A similar laptop proposal is being considered by fellow Gulf carrier, Emirates, which is also affected by the US ban.
On the other hand, Abu Dhabi’s Etihad Airways said it would offer free wi-fi and tablet computers to first and business class passengers on US-bound flights.
