Easa To Follow FAA On PED

Wed Nov 13, 2013 8:58 pm

EASA has stated they will release updated regulations regarding use of personal electronic devices by the end of this month:

Preliminary indications are that EASA will likely follow the recently released regulations by the FAA around PED use onboard.
Next flight: TK 80/864: SFO-IST-TLV

This is all fluff, EASA never had any law actually banning European airlines from already implementing this before.

It remains to be seen who will be the first European airline to allow PEDs during all phases.

The JAA had JAR OPS 1.110 which I think came into EU-OPS. Anyway, I think it's good to see international harmonisation of these regulations and a lack of duplication of effort, though I imagine the FAA consulted widely on this.
Down with that sort of thing!

Do we have any more information on where we are with getting PED gate to gate in Europe?

BA is the first European airline to allow the use of PEDs during taxy after landing.

Following Easa’s decision and release of guidance by the end of November this year, the UK Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) can then implement the recommendations with individual airlines. Instead of a blanket change, the approval for use of electronic devices during all phases of flight will be made on an airline by airline basis.

Mobile telephones will continue to be placed into flight safe mode, larger items stowed and the use of headphones prohibited during take off and landing.
