"With this confirmation inspection, the ban will be lifted from Ataturk Airport and Turkish Airlines... the fact that it didn't last too long is an advantage for us," Arslan said.
In March, the United States banned laptops in cabins on flights to the United States originating at 10 airports in eight countries - Egypt, Morocco, Jordan, the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Qatar and Turkey - to address fears that bombs could be concealed in electronic devices taken aboard aircraft. ■
