PEDs

Use of Personal Electronic Devices (PEDs)

 

It has been determined that certain electronic devices could cause minor interference with aircraft navigational instruments.  Therefore, restrictions on the use of personal electronic devices are necessary.

Most consumer portable electronic devices intended for personal use are permitted in checked, gate-checked, or carry-out baggage including cell phones, electronic games, tablets, laptops and cameras. Batteries for these devices typically do not exceed the limitations for carriage (see section regarding Batteries below). Note there are important exceptions including, but not limited to, Electronic Cigarettes and Hoverboards.

Although PEDs are permitted in Customer’s baggage, use of these devices is restricted, as governed by the FAA. All PEDs must be turned “OFF” from gate to gate, while the aircraft is in transit. This includes, but is not limited to, cell phones, electronic games, tablets, laptops, cameras, and portable music devices.

Additionally, cell phones must be “OFF” while boarding and deplaning via the airport ramp leading to or from the aircraft.

Approved PEDs for Use Onboard At All Times, with No Restrictions:

  • Portable voice recorders
  • Hearing aids
  • Pacemakers, and other approved electronic medical devices
  • One-way pagers (capable of receiving signals only)
  • Electric shavers
  • Electronic / digital watches

Prohibited PEDs Not Approved for Use at ANY Time Onboard: 

  • AM/FM transmitters and receivers (including televisions and radios)
  • Bluetooth accessories (e.g. wireless mice, keyboards, headphones)
  • Electronic, simulated smoking materials (e.g. cigarettes, pipes, cigars)
  • Personal air purifiers
  • Remote control devices or toys
  • Two-way communication devices (unless otherwise permitted pursuant to this section)
  • Portable oxygen concentrators (POCs)
