The nine affected airlines are: Royal Jordanian, Egypt Air, Turkish Airlines, Saudi Arabian Airlines, Kuwait Airways, Royal Air Maroc, Qatar Airways, Emirates and Etihad Airways.
The 10 airports targeted are: Queen Alia International, Amman, Jordan; Cairo International Airport, Egypt; Ataturk Airport, Istanbul, Turkey; King Abdulaziz International, Jeddah, Saudi Arabia; King Khalid International, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia; Kuwait International Airport; Mohammed V International, Casablanca, Morocco; Hamad International, Doha, Qatar; Dubai International, United Arab Emirates; Abu Dhabi International, United Arab Emirates.
Large electronic devices can only be carried in the hold baggage. Phones / smartphones have escaped the new transport rules on board aircraft.
