Portable Electronic Devices
For your safety, the use of certain carry-on portable electronic devices is restricted inflight, as they may interfere with the aircraft navigation and control systems. We would appreciate if you could refrain from using any portable electronic equipment while the aircraft is taxiing, during takeoff and climb, or during approach and landing.
If you are planning to use a Medical Portable Electronic Device inflight, please see here for detailed information.
Electronic devices that are most likely to cause interference are amateur transceivers, CB radios, transmitting or wireless-enabled devices such as Bluetooth and remote control devices, including toys. The use of these devices is banned at all times on board.
Mobile phones must be switched off completely when the cabin doors are closed for departure and must not be turned on again until after landing. The cabin crew will advise you when you can switch them on again. Mobile phones may be used on the ground during transit at any time the cabin doors are open (unless otherwise instructed by cabin crew).
Other forms of electronic devices such as computer equipment (e.g. laptops and PDAs), audio/video equipment (e.g. CDs, MDs, MP3s, iPods, DVDs, VCDs, CD-ROMs), photographic equipment (e.g. camcorders and digital cameras) and devices with their wireless function disabled may be used on board after the seat belt sign is switched off after takeoff until the seat belt sign is switched on in preparation for landing. The cabin crew will make an announcement to remind you of this safety requirement.
In-seat power will soon be available across our entire fleet for the devices mentioned above. These in-seat power ratings are however not designed for use with medical devices such as CPAP machines. Passengers must provide their own batteries that are sufficient to power medical portable electronic devices.
Please note that personal electronic devices cannot be plugged into the aircraft's utility electrical power supply outlets. This includes any type of charging devices. An exception is made for portable shavers which may only be used in the appropriate sockets in the lavatories.
