Vietnamese Civil Aviation Authority (CAAV) Lifts Apple MacBook Pro Laptop Ban on 2015-2017 Aircraft

From November 15, Apple MacBook Pro will be available on Vietnamese flights. But to do so, you must either turn them off or replace the battery.

CAAV banned these notebooks on its flights in August. The decision followed a similar ban by the U.S. aviation authorities. And then, in turn, for the reports of the explosion of the batteries of these computers.

In February, the U.S. aviation authorities assigned Vietnam a CAT-1 rating. This means that aviation standards in the country comply with international standards. Thanks to this, Vietnam Airlines was able to create flights between Vietnam and the United States.
