Gadget Restrictions On European Flights To Be Removed This Year

Only last month the FAA announced that they would be allowing the use of gadgets during flight take off and landing, now it looks like the same rules will be put in place for those flying in and out of Europe.

It is no secret that many of us cannot go five minutes without the need to use our smartphones, tablets, iPad, gaming devices and more. Sitting and waiting for a flight to take off or having to stare at the back of the seat in front of you for 30 minutes while the flight lands can be tedious, especially on long flights where you just want to unwind and read your Kindle. These new rules will allow you to enjoy your gadgets pretty much as they were intended, with only a few limits remaining in place.

Your phones and other similar devices will still have to stay in flight mode, so texting, calls and other transmitters will still have to be turned off, but listening to music, watching videos and gaming should be absolutely fine.

“This is a major step in the process of expanding the freedom to use personal electronic devices on-board aircraft without compromise in safety” said Patrick Ky, EASA Executive Director.

Are you looking forward to being able to keep yourself entertained during take off and landing?
