Wizz Air allows gate-to-gate PED use
Wizz Air now allows the use of PEDs from gate-to-gate following the adoption of the new EASA guidelines by the Hungarian CAA.
Following the recent issuing of new guidelines by the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), Wizz Air has relaxed its own rules on the use of personal electronic devices (PEDs) onboard.
The development means Wizz Air’s passengers can now use their smartphones, tablets and e-books from gate-to-gate, as long as they are in flight mode.
Wizz Air’s Daniel Carvalho said: “Portable electronic devices are now a firm part of our everyday life and new guidelines for the use of these devices when flying have been issued by EASA and adopted by the Hungarian CAA.
“We encourage passengers to bring their favourite gadgets and read a book or watch a movie…while our crew takes good care of them and carries them to their destination.”
If you are committed to enhancing the onboard passenger experience, make sure you attend the FTE Up in the Air conference, which will take place at our flagship event, FTE Global 2014, in Las Vegas from 24-26 September 2014. The theme of the event is 'Redefining the end-to-end passenger experience'.
The Up in the Air conference will focus on all things in-flight – including IFE&C, passenger and crew connectivity, cabin design, passenger comfort, personalisation and ancillary revenue generation – and we look forward to playing an important role in shaking up the passenger experience in the air, which has evolved very little in the last 20 years, unlike on the ground.
