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.
