868х190_header_electronic_devices.jpg

Please read the rules for using electronic devices during the flight in order to avoid causing interference to aircraft flight instruments and systems.

You no longer have to turn off your mobile phone or tablet, even during takeoff and landing; you just have to enable the offline mode ('flight mode') or turn off the cellular connection.

Allowed

Electronic devices that do not have data transfer capability (GSM, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth), hearing aids, pacemakers and other portable equipment required for medical purposes (subject to agreement with the airline when booking) can be used during all stages of the flight.

Allowed with restrictions

Electronic devices that do have data transfer capability (GSM, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth) can be used on board if:

  • the offline mode ('flight mode') with disabled GSM, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connections is enabled - during all stages of the flight*;
  • the GSM connection is enabled - during the flight (except during taxiing, takeoff, climbing, descending and landing), for aircraft on which the Internet On Board service is available;
  • the Wi-Fi connection is enabled - during the flight (except during taxiing, takeoff, climbing, descending and landing), for aircraft on which the wireless in-flight entertainment system or the Internet On Board service is available;
  • the Bluetooth connection is enabled - during the flight (except during taxiing, takeoff, climbing, descending and landing), for Boeing 737/777 and Airbus A320/A321/A330 aircraft;

* During taxiing, takeoff, climbing, descending and landing, laptops and/or other electronic devices of substantial size and weighing over 1 kg shall be turned off and stowed away with the carry-on baggage.


Should any concern arise regarding the impact of the above-mentioned devices on the normal operation of the aircraft's navigation and radio communication systems, the pilot-in-command has the right to demand that passengers stop using all electronic devices for the entire duration of the flight, except for hearing aids, pacemakers and other life-supporting equipment.


Passengers may engage the default mode on their devices upon arrival at the destination airport once the aircraft doors are opened.

Not Allowed

Use of receiving and transmitting devices that use radio communications, including satellite phones, radio receivers, radio transmitters, portable radios (Walkie-Talkies), portable TV sets, amateur radio receivers, portable radio transceivers, remote-controlled devices/toys, and wireless microphones is prohibited.


If your device emits sound, the use of headphones is required.
