However, a recent announcement indicated that if those airports introduce rigorous checks on passengers before they board the flight, the ban could be reviewed.

"We welcome the decision by the USA department of homeland security to lift the electronic devices ban on flights between Abu Dhabi and the United States, following the successful validation of security measures at the U.S. preclearance facility at Abu Dhabi airport", said a statement from the carrier.

Emirates Airline and Turkish Airlines have joined Etihad Airways among the growing list of carriers exempt from the ban on large electronic devices in the cabins of airplanes arriving in the us from several Middle Eastern and North African countries.

At Abu Dhabi International Airport, travelers bound for the United States Tuesday enjoyed something many others flying out of the Middle East can't - walking onto an airplane with their laptop.

Feud between Lewis Hamilton and Sebastian Vettel heats up
The four-time champion also issued an apology to Hamilton via a statement which he released on his personal website. My only point to Sebastian was to correct publicly that I brake-tested him, which was not the case.

Laan said: "We look forward to working with other airlines to ensure implementation of these critical measures as quickly as possible".

The laptop ban, coupled with the Trump administration's travel ban on six predominantly Muslim countries, has hurt Middle Eastern airlines.

Dubai-based Emirates airlines says the U.S. has exempted it from a ban on laptops in airplane cabins.

The Transportation Security Administration has appreciated the action taken by Etihad Airways since it is a part of an anti-terrorism measure for the safety of the worldwide civil aviation and the industry.

Acting chief executive of operations, Abu Dhabi Airports, AbdulMajeed al-Khoori, told Reuters on Monday that USA officials assessed the airport on Saturday night.

To celebrate the milestone event, a ribbon-cutting ceremony was held in Abu Dhabi, attended by senior executives from Etihad Airways, the embassy of the People's Republic of China in the UAE, and the Abu Dhabi Tourism & Culture Authority.

The UAE's busiest airport is Emirates hub Dubai International Airport, which is also the world's busiest for international travellers.

Emirates flies to 12 USA cities.

The US is one of Etihad Airways' largest markets, with 203,515 passengers flying to the US from Abu Dhabi between January and April this year. Saudi Arabian Airlines said Wednesday it hoped to be off the ban list "on or before July 19", without elaborating.
