EASA approves use of in-flight electronics during take-off and landing

The European Aviation Safety Agency (Easa) has approved the use of electronic devices during take-off and landing and will publish its guidance regarding safety testing and which devices can and can’t be used during all phases of flight by the end of November.

The approval follows Federal Aviation Administration’s ruling in October that personal electronic devices such as ebook readers, tablet computers and portable games consoles could be used “during all phases of flight”. Mobile phones will also be allowed, as long as their cellular radios are disabled or they are put into “airplane mode”.

Larger electronic devices, such as laptop computers, will need to be stowed during taxiing, take-off and landing due to their bulk.
