Qatar Airways group executive, Akbar Al Baker, stated:
We truly appreciate the significance of being able to operate on board our aircraft and that’s the reason I have insisted on offering the finest possible way for our clients.

The ban has generated some controversy. Earlier this week that the manager of business the International Air Transport Association (IATA) warned that the laptop cabin ban won’t be successful as a safety measure.
IATA chief executive Alexandre p Juniac also explained the ban will produce “commercial distortions”.
“We call on authorities to work together with the industry to discover a way to maintain flying secure without separating passengers in their personal electronics,” he added.
