Updated January 25, 2018 11:18:23A new air travel rule announced by the United States has brought a number of airlines and airlines customers back to the drawing board.
The changes, which were introduced in late December, will affect travellers on domestic flights from April 2019.
The new rules aim to ensure that travellers flying from the United Kingdom and Ireland, for example, will be able to use their own flights and will not be forced to pay extra for domestic flights.
The move comes after months of protests by travellers from the countries, which have been criticised for their treatment of migrants.
The UK and Ireland have also come under fire for charging extra fees to passengers from countries such as Iran and Syria.
The US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is working on a new rule which will allow travellers to book domestic flights in their own country from April 2020.
This new rule will be subject to a new, tougher rule for airlines to comply with in the United Arab Emirates and Turkey.
This new rule has not been formally announced by Faisal bin Zayed Al Nahyan, the crown prince of the United Emirates.
However, the FAA said on Wednesday that it was preparing to update its rule for air carriers from the beginning of 2020.
The rule has been criticised by travellers, who say that the United states should not be imposing restrictions on airlines in countries that have already introduced their own restrictions.
In a statement, the US Federal Transportation Administration said it would update the rule in April 2020 to ensure all airlines would be required to meet the same requirements.
However it also warned airlines against charging passengers more for domestic travel, saying this would have a negative impact on business travellers.
“We will continue to review all options for air carrier compliance with the United Nations Refugee Convention,” the FAA added.
“While we cannot predict when that will be, we have the tools at our disposal to enforce this rule.”
The FAA said airlines would also have to comply more closely with the rule when it came into force, meaning they would have to apply for a special exemption.
It also said that the rule would not apply to airlines flying to or from the US or to the United kingdom, with the exception of certain air routes.
A number of the airlines were quick to take to Twitter to express their support for the new rules.
The United Arab Emirate tweeted: “The United States must follow the UN Refugee Convention.
If we can’t do it, the rest of the world should do it”.
United Arab Emirates tweeted: “We hope the United countries take this opportunity to do their part in helping our fellow citizens who are fleeing oppression in the Middle East”.
The United Kingdom said: “We want to see all countries on board the #AirPallet, not just the United and Ireland.
We want to ensure the people who are most vulnerable, the refugees, are safe.”
United Arab Emirates tweeted:The United Sates said: #AirPalet should be mandatory for all flights from the UK to #US and #UK to #AQ.
#Syria, #Iran, #SyriaA number other countries, including the United Arabs, Saudi Arabia and the UAE also tweeted their support.
United Arab states also tweeted: The US must follow international rules to ensure air passengers are not denied entry to #Syria.
#Iran #Syria #IraqA number countries, such as the UAE and Bahrain, also tweeted support.
However, some people were disappointed that airlines were charging more for flights to and from the U.S.
The Department of Homeland Security said it was working with the US Department of Justice and the FAA to make sure that airlines complied with the new rule.
“As we’ve noted many times before, airlines must comply with the current regulations and they will continue working with us to ensure they comply with all of our obligations,” the department said in a statement.
“The Department is also in the process of reviewing our compliance requirements with the refugee convention, which is currently under review.”
