Wizz Air has announced that passengers are now allowed 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 will now allow the use of such devices when operated in flight mode during any phase of the flight.
Passengers will still be asked to remove headphones during the safety announcements and to switch off electronic devices when the crew cannot confirm that these are operating in flight mode and match the criteria for usage during the flight. Larger electronic devices which could lead to injuries, such as laptops, will need to be stored for takeoff and landing.
