LOT Polish Airlines (Warsaw) is allowing passengers to use their personal electronic devices (PED) on board LOT’s aircraft in flight mode beginning on February 17, 2014.
Passengers may keep these devices switched on throughout the journey including take-offs and landings. They may use all the functions on their phones, tablets, MP3 players or cameras, but without the use of the cellular signal (making calls or sending SMSes).
The use of PEDs on board LOT’s aircraft was driven by a decision of the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) which stated the use of electronics on board planes does not affect aircraft operations provided the flight mode (non-transmitting mode) is switched on.
