Airline allows cell phone calls in-flight

23 March 2008

The Dubai-base Emirates airline has announced a policy of allowing passengers to make cell phone calls during flight, and is reportedly the first airline in the world to do so.

The airline’s Airbus A340 has been modified to prevent calls from interfering with aviation electronics.

Calls are allowed only at cruising altitude during the day, and passengers are encouraged to use “‘silent mode'” so other passengers aren’t disturbed by ringtones.
