Etihad said Sunday that it welcomed the decision.
Etihad Airways welcomed the decision, and credited a preclearance facility at Abu Dhabi International Airport where passengers clear USA immigration before they land in the United States for "superior security advantages" that had allowed it to satisfy U.S. requirements.
On Twitter, David Lapan, a spokesman at DHS, praised Etihad for its "swift" action.
The US had on March 25 banned electronic devices larger than a mobile phone in passenger cabins of direct flights to the country from 10 airports in the Gulf, North Africa and Turkey, including Emirates, Etihad, Qatar and Turkish. "Their efforts are a model for both foreign and domestic airlines looking to adopt the new measures".
"In this context, we would like to extend our honest thanks to our distinguished guests for their understanding and loyalty during the period when the devices embargo was in force", said the statement.
Emirates airline, based in nearby Dubai, which is also in the U.A.E., is still subject to the laptop ban.
Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly suggested in a May appearance on Fox News that the ban could be expanded to all global flights, but officials backed away from that proposal last week. The airline is the largest global carrier in the world.
The U.S. and Europe spent weeks negotiating whether to restrict large electronics on all flights bound for the U.S. However, passengers can expect to go through a more "extensive screening process". Travelers to the United States clear customs before departing Abu Dhabi, allowing them to skip immigration lines upon arriving in the United States.
Etihad is the only airline that operates direct flights from Abu Dhabi to the United States.
Last week, the United States unveiled security measures for flights to the country created to prevent the expansion of the ban to more countries that could cause major logistical problems and deter travel.
Etihad did not elaborate on what additional security measures passengers would face to be allowed to have their laptops, tablets and other electronics with them on their flights.
The criterion are, in part, created to let affected carriers allow electronics in airplane cabins again, while helping others avoid a ban. He said Etihad's changes were required within a "shorter timeframe".
