Smartphones and tablets can now be used during take-off and landing on airberlin

airberlin guests can now use their personal electronic devices on almost all of the airline’s short, medium and long-haul flights during take-off, landing and taxiing, providing the devices are in flight mode. This will make flying with airberlin even more enjoyable for flight guests as personal electronic devices in flight mode can now be used during all flight phases across almost the entire airberlin fleet.

"Modern flight guests want uninterrupted access to their personal electronic devices, even while on board, rather than having to switch them on and off again several times. airberlin is now making this possible. Personal electronic devices can be used throughout entire flights on all the planes in our Airbus and Boeing fleet providing their transmission function is disabled. Once the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) relaxed the regulations, it was extremely important to us to implement the changes as quickly as possible. To do so, airberlin obtained the necessary technical certifications and the necessary official permits for required procedures from the Federal Aviation Office," said Oliver Lackmann, Head of Flight Operations at airberlin.

airberlin is one of the leading airlines in Europe and flies to 147 destinations worldwide. The second largest airline in Germany carried more than 31.5 million passengers in 2013. airberlin offers a global route network through its strategic partnership with Etihad Airways, which has a 29.21% share in airberlin, and through membership of the oneworld® airline alliance. The airline with the award-winning service operates codeshare flights worldwide with 16 airlines. The fleet has an average age of five years and is among the most modern and eco-efficient in Europe.
