European airlines to allow gadget use during takeoff and landing

onboardWhen flying across Europe, you will soon be able to use your smartphone, tablets, e-readers and other portable gadgets for the entire duration of your flight.

The European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), is expected to publish a set of guidelines at the end of the month allowing passengers in Europe to use their gadgets during takeoff and landing.

The changes mean that you can now use your smartphone and other gadgets on your flight as long as they are in airplane mode, which means you cannot text or make calls during the flight.

The EASA also mentioned that it was considering allowing passengers to make calls with mobile phones while in-flight, but noted that this was a long-term goal.

The move follows similar guideline changes in the US as the Federal Aviation Authority allowed passengers to use their gadgets during flights.
