The following portable electronic devices may be used on board after take-off, with their wireless function disabled, when the cabin crew informs you that it is safe to switch them on and may remain on until the seatbelt sign is turned on for landing:

  • Cellular Communication Devices such as Mobile Phones and Pagers in “Flight Safe/Airplane” mode with the Phone and Wi-Fi functions disabled.
