Europe is relaxing rules about the use of electronics during flights, paving the way for devices to be used during take-off and landing.Europe To Allow Gadget Use During The Whole Flight [bbc.co.uk]
The European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) has published guidelines saying use of such devices should now be allowed during take-off and landing.
The EASA stipulates that devices must be used in "airplane mode", meaning passengers cannot use voice or text services.
This is due to the possibility of radio interference with flight equipment.
The changes will apply to aircraft operated by European airlines and are likely to be introduced at the end of the month.
