The US authorities issued new rules that ban passengers on flights to the US from carrying electronic and electrical devices in the aircraft cabin, but have them in their checked baggage.
The decision of the US authorities included the flights from Amman’s Queen Alia International Airport to the US, besides the departing flights from nine other airports in the Middle East, the Arab Gulf and North Africa.
RJ will implement these instructions as of March 24, 2017. By taking these measures, it spares passengers the hassle of having to go through legal procedures in the US. RJ passengers departing from Queen Alia International Airport to the United States are not allowed to carry any electronic or electrical devices on board the aircraft cabin. Prohibited devices, which include -but not limited to- laptops, iPads, tablets and cameras, can be transported in the checked baggage only, whereas cellular phones and needed medical devices are excluded from the ban.
The RJ stations in the US include: New York, Chicago and Detroit, in addition to Montreal, as it is served by a combined flight with Detroit.
The ban excludes passengers flying from these stations to Amman.
RJ calls upon its passengers traveling to the United States to abide by these instructions to facilitate their travel. They are also requested to inform airport check-in staff of any prohibited devices- which are still in their possession- in order to be put in their checked baggage.

When it comes to choosing the aircraft for use as an air ambulance, no other air medical transport can match the safety, comfort and speed offered by Heathrow Air Ambulance Service jet. This is the reason that most of the patients choose to take the company’s jets for use as flight ambulance transport.
The preferred aircraft for transporting patients is the jet aircraft. One of the biggest advantages of these type of aircraft is that they have longer range and are capable of flying in almost bad weather conditions. Also, all of the jet aircraft come with pressurized cabins and also with optional lavatories, which are essential for patients.
These jets are very reliable and are typically the only option for transporting patients over long distances, especially for inter-continental transportation of patients. Some of the other advantages of using Heathrow Air Ambulance Service jet as air ambulance are as follows.
1. It’s Less Stressful
The jet’s cabins are pressurized to ensure that the patients are able to travel in a comfortable manner. This also makes traveling easier for the flight paramedics. Jets can travel at a very high speed and are very useful in cases where time can be the difference between life and death. In such cases, jet aircraft can literally save lives.
2. All-Weather Aircraft
The jets can fly in almost bad weather conditions and therefore, can get the patient to the required medical facility whenever there’s a chance.
3. A Lot of Room
Another advantage of using Heathrow Air Ambulance Service jet aircraft as an air ambulance is that these have a lot of room. This also means that if one has to transfer more than one patient in an air ambulance, these patients can be easily transported. Also, there is a lot of room available for luggage as well as medical equipment in the jet aircraft.
