You can use them in "airplane mode" or equivalent throughout the flight. Enable the Wi-Fi and data network when the service is available and indicated by the mobile signal.

If they cause interference with electronic devices the captain may ban their use.

They must be turned off if placed inside checked baggage.

Check the regulation on the carriage of lithium batteries installed in electronic equipment or carried as spares.

Flight mode icon

Enhance your travel experience by switching the following devices to “flight mode” or equivalent during all phases of the flight:

  • Mobile phones

  • Music players

  • Portable game consoles

  • Bluetooth devices

  • Personal computers with or without an external mouse

  • Tablets and handheld PDAs

If any device or battery is damaged, overheats, emits smoke or accidently slips into the mechanism of the seats, please inform the cabin crew immediately. If a battery is damaged, switch off the device completely (not standby mode) and put it in a visible place where you can observe it and where it can't accidently be activated. Disable any feature that could switch it on (e.g. alarms) and don't charge it.
