EU extends the use of electronic devices on planes


The European
Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) has updated its guidance on the use of portable
electronic devices (or PEDs) on board planes – including smartphones, tablets,
MP3 players and e-readers.

This first step will permit the use of all portable
electronics in "flight mode" or "airplane mode" – i.e. not
transmitting – throughout the journey, including taxiing, take-off and landing.
Until now, all portable electronic devices had to be completely switched off
during taxiing, take-off and landing. New guidance on this will be issued in
the coming months.
