The US government may have barred passengers from bringing any electronic device larger than a cellphone on board certain flights to and from the Middle East and Africa.
The US Department of Homeland Security has declined to comment on the guidance, but noted it would provide an update as appropriate.
United States authorities are planning to ban passengers travelling on certain US-bound foreign airline flights from taking electronic devices larger than mobile phones on board in response to an unspecified terrorism threat, a U.S. government official has said.
In 2014, the Transportation Security Administration required some passengers to show their electronics could power up over concern explosives were hidden in the devices.
A representative for Royal Jordanian Airlines was not immediately available for comment, but the airline's official social media account is actively responding to concerned travelers.
"Prohibited devices" like laptops, cameras, DVD players and video-game consoles could only be carried with checked luggage, the airline said.
The restrictions would apply to flights coming from some North African and Middle Eastern countries, according to CNN.
The ban will apply to devices larger than a mobile phone, the official said. It's unclear which countries and airlines are actually affected by this, for example. In February, after a federal court temporarily froze the travel ban he ordered, the airline turned the ban into fodder for a cheeky advertisement.
The ban is said to be for a limited period which was not specified.
