British Airways to ease restrictions on electronic devices
June 27 , 2013
British Airways is set to become the first European carrier to allow passengers to turn on their mobile phones and other devices after landing.
From July 1, people will be able to switch on their electronic devices after an aircraft has got off the runway people rather than having to wait until it has stopped completely.
Airlines from other countries have allowed passengers to do the same for some time.
Passengers are banned from using their electronic devices on airlines due to interference with the plane’s equipment, especially when taking off and landing.
