The Art of Communication

Telephone calls are charged at a flat rate per minute, or part thereof, at US$8.80*. Most major credit cards are accepted. Please note that toll-free numbers and international directory enquiries are not available from your inflight phone. The system cannot accept incoming calls either.

Mobile phone and Transmitting devices

Mobile phones must be switched off or in Airplane mode until after landing. Transmitting devices such as Walkie-talkies, remote control devices, and devices with Wi-Fi or Bluetooth functions enabled must not be used on the aircraft.

Electronic Devices

All other electronic devices need to be switched off during take off, as these can interfere with aircraft instruments and systems. The cabin crew will inform you when it is safe to switch them on again.

The use of certain portable electronic devices is restricted inflight, as they may interfere with the aircraft systems and must remain off while the aircraft is taxiing, during take-off, and landing.

Small handheld portable electronic devices such as smart/mobile phones, tablet, eBook in “Flight Safe/Airplane” mode with Wi-Fi functions disabled may be used throughout the flight. Devices such as electronic games, music players, digital cameras, camcorders, calculators, electric shavers, breast pumps and digital thermometers may be used throughout the flight.

Larger electronic devices such as laptops, notebooks, portable DVD players, may only be used during boarding and in-flight. However, they must be stowed away for taxi, take-off and landing. When in use these devices must be in “Flight Safe/Airplane” mode and all transmitting functions such as Bluetooth and Wi-Fi must be disabled.
