British Airways has become the first airline in Europe to relax restrictions on using personal electronic devices after landing, according to the BBC News. The new relaxed rules come into effect for all British Airways flights from July 1.
Passenger will now be able to switch on their mobile phones as well as devices such as tablets and Kindle e-readers after the aircraft clears the runway upon landing.
Earlier, the airline required passengers to wait until the aircraft came to a complete stop and all doors were opened.
The restrictions on gadget use will continue for passengers on departing flights.
The US Federal Aviation Administration is also expected to relax gadget-use rules later this year.
