EU paves way to surfing the Internet on planes

  

The new instructions of the European Union Aviation Safety Agency will allow passengers to keep their electronic devices in “flight mode” throughout their journey, a move that should be followed by allowing surfing of the Internet next year.

The European Commissioner in charge of Transport, Siim Kallas, announced today that electronic devices in airplanes will soon be allowed throughout the journey, “from gate to gate”, as the European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) updated its rules today (9 December).
