The UK directive bans electronic devices larger than a cell phone and applies to airplanes departing from Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Lebanon, Jordan, Tunisia and Egypt.

It comes after the United States lifted the laptop ban on Sunday for Etihad flights from Abu Dhabi to the US.

Saudia Airlines confirmed Wednesday that USA -bound passengers can now carry portable electronic devices on board its airplanes. DHS' confidence in these airlines' strengthened security procedures has resulted in the laptop ban being lifted for those airlines specifically. "And there will be more thorough passenger vetting", David told NPR's All Things Considered.
