The Saudi national airline also said on Tuesday it expects the USA to lift a ban on laptops and tablets in the cabins of its US-bound flights from the kingdom by July 19.

The airline is working with the country's civil aviation authority, GACA, to implement new security measures for U.S. -bound flights announced by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security last week, according to the SPA report. It was one of 10 airports affected by the ban on cabin electronics put in place by the Trump administration in March.

The ban was imposed after intelligence officials learned of efforts by the Islamic State group to produce a bomb that could be hidden inside electronic devices.

"Effective immediately, the electronics ban has been lifted for Emirates' flights from Dubai International Airport to the USA", an Emirates spokesperson said in a statement.

In Istanbul, Turkish Airlines tweeted that passengers aboard its US -bound flights should "fasten your seatbelts and enjoy your own electronic devices". This follows Abu Dhabi-based Etihad being exempted from the ban.

Both airlines took to Twitter on Wednesday to share news with passengers.

Saudia, also known as Saudi Arabian Airlines, said the ban would be lifted "on or before July 19" and it was working with United States authorities on "alternative security measures". Somalia's al-Qaida-linked al-Shabab said it planted a bomb inside a laptop-like device that exploded on a plane leaving Mogadishu in February 2016, killing only the bomber.

"Effective immediately laptops & electronic devices can be taken onboard all Emirates flights from Dubai to the USA", tweeted Emirates. The Gulf carriers all vigorously deny that.
