THY to provide laptops on US flights

Turkish Airlines has started offering laptops to business-class travelers after the U.K. and the United States banned large electronic devices from the cabin of flights from certain countries. Washington has barred all electronic devices larger than a mobile phone on direct flights to the United States from 10 airports in seven Middle Eastern countries and Turkey, only allowing them to be transported in hold luggage. The U.K. followed with a similar ban for five countries in the Middle East and North Africa as well as Turkey. But Turkish Airlines said it would offer travelers a solution. "The national flag carrier has now started to offer laptops for its business class passengers on U.S.-bound flights as from today," it said in a statement. The airline will also offer the same service for U.K.-bound business class passengers from May 12.
