airBaltic Allows Personal Electronic Devices Gate to Gate

Latvian airline, airBaltic, will allow passengers to use their tablets, book readers, players, games and other personal electronic devices from gate to gate starting 18 April.

Martin Gauss, Chief Executive Officer of airBaltic: “Our customers have long wanted to be able to read a book, review documents and photos, or watch a movie on their electronic devices whenever they are onboard one of our flights. We are delighted that in the busy Easter travel period our passengers can begin enjoying the use of their electronic devices in all phases of flight.”

Under the rules, passengers need to place their electronic devices in airplane mode. Mobile phones may not be used for calls and all devices must be turned off in rare cases when instructed by crew members. Laptops and other larger devices must be stowed during takeoff and landing so they do not pose a safety hazard. Furthermore, passengers are also kindly asked to follow safety demonstrations.

For summer 2014, airBaltic has introduced six new destinations - Burgas and Varna (Bulgaria), Palma de Mallorca (Spain), Bucharest (Romania), Gothenburg (Sweden), and Aberdeen (Scotland, within the UK).
