DfT just lifted the electronic ban on MEA flights bound to the UK!

On March 22, Middle East Airlines (MEA)


that starting March 25, electronic devices that exceed 16 cm in length, 9.3 cm in width, and 1.5 cm in depth are not allowed in the cabin. These devices must be carried in the luggage. So, people can only use their smartphones on the airplane. MEA requested from the passengers to arrive three hours early to the airport for inspection procedures. Today, MEA announced that the United Kingdom’s Department for Transport (DfT) had lifted the electronic ban on incoming flights. From now on, the passengers are allowed to carry laptops, tablets, e-readers, and other electronic devices to the cabin. Lebanon’s national carrier thanks its passengers for understanding the ban and cooperating with the issue, and the H.E. British Ambassador in Lebanon Mr. Hugo Shorter
