1132

Emirates has introduced another service to mitigate the inconvenience of the recent ban on electronic devices on board US-bound flights.

First and business class passengers will now be able to borrow tablets on board Emirates’ US-bound flights allowing them to continue working during their flight.

The new service is in response to the US Transportation Security Administration directive which requires all passengers travelling on non-stop flights to the US from Dubai to check-in their laptops, tablets, and other personal electronic devices larger than a smart phone.
As part of this latest service, Emirates premium customers will have a Microsoft Surface tablets equipped with Microsoft Office 2016 available for loan on board. Customers can download their work on to a USB which can be brought on board and plugged into the devices to continue working seamlessly.

The service is complimentary and will be available on all non-stop flights from Dubai to Emirates’ US destinations.
