Qatar Airways have come up with a unique solution to the recently imposed Electronics Ban by offering passengers a laptop loan service.
Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive, His Excellency Mr. Akbar Al Baker, said; “As an award-winning and global airline we truly appreciate the importance of being able to work on board our aircraft and that is why I have insisted on offering only the best possible solution for our customers. By providing this laptop loan service we can ensure that our passengers on flights to the US can continue to work whilst on-board. This unique ability to offer ‘business as usual’, above and beyond the competition, is yet another example of Qatar Airways justification for being the ‘World’s Best Business Class’.”
The complimentary laptops will be available to Business Class passengers travelling on all US-bound flights from next week and can be collected after boarding.
Customers will be able to download their work on to a USB before stepping on board to pick up where they left-off.
As well as the laptop loan service, Qatar Airways is offering a special service at the gate for all passengers, whereby any electronic items prohibited by the new ban will be collected and securely packaged. These will be tagged, loaded as check-in baggage and returned safely to the customer on arrival to the US.
Qatar Airways is also providing one hour of free Wi-Fi for all passengers and a special Wi-Fi package of US$5 to stay connected for the duration of the whole flight.
