When can electronic equipment such as laptops, iPods and mobile phones be used?

All Personal Electronic Devices (PEDs) must be placed in flight mode inside the departure terminal and must remain in flight mode until inside the arrival terminal. Small handheld PEDs weighing less than 1kg, such as mobile phones can be used in flight mode during all stages of flight. Generally PEDs over 1kg, such as laptop computers, must be stowed appropriately for taxi, take-off and landing, and are permitted to be used only during cruise when the 'Fasten Seatbelt' sign is switched off. PEDs cannot be used while crossing the tarmac.
