Turkey says US to lift laptop ban on Istanbul-origin flightsThe United States is set to lift a ban on carrying large electronic devices, such as laptops, in the cabin of US-bound flights from Turkey’s main international airport, Turkish Transport Minister Ahmet Arslan said on Tuesday. Its removal would come after Turkey began using highly sophisticated tomography devices for X-ray and ultrasound at Istanbul’s Ataturk International Airport, he said. “With this confirmation mission, the ban will be lifted from Ataturk airport and from Turkish Airlines,” Arslan said.
