Wizz Air is now allowing passengers the option to use Portable Electronic Devices (PEDs) such as mobile phones, electronic readers and tablet computers, on all Wizz Air flights.
The new guidelines for the use of PEDs on board aircraft have been issued by the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) and adopted by the Hungarian Civil Aviation Authority. Wizz Air now allows the use of such devices when operated in flight mode during any phase of the flight.
Passengers must still follow procedures, such as removing headphones during the safety announcements and switching off electronic devices when the crew cannot confirm that these are operating in flight mode and match the criteria for usage during the flight. To avoid any injuries, larger electronic devices, such as laptops, will need to be stored for take-off and landing.
"We are very pleased to now allow our over 13 million yearly passengers to use their electronic gadgets when flying Wizz Air,” said Daniel de Carvalho, corporate communications, Wizz Air. “We encourage passengers to bring their favourite gadgets and read a book or watch a movie when flying on our low fares, while our crew takes good care of them and carries them to their destination.”
