Istanbul: The Turkish Airlines on May 6 announced that it would provide laptops to business class passengers who are flying to the United States and United Kingdom after the two countries banned large electronic devices for passengers who are flying to cities in their countries. Turkish Airlines said business class passengers could request the cabin crew to provide them laptops to be used during the flight. The data would be secured and protect the user’s privacy and it will be automatically deleted after being shut down.
Several countries have dubbed the ban on carrying of on-flight laptops from Middle Eastern countries as ‘racist’ move by the Western nations.
