Finally, Inflight Smartphone Usage Will Be Allowed In China

It’s been said that the Chinese aviation authorities has been working on introducing new rules to allow smartphone usage inflight. The policy itself has been heavily contested as it’s rather outdated and illogical in today’s world.

It looks like such policy has finally been revised and as per @ ChinaAviationReview, PED(personal electronic device) and mobile flight usage will be allowed at all phase of flight starting from Jan 18th 2018 onboard China Eastern Airlines(MU),(which is already in place local time in China) that includes take-off, taxi and landing.

When it was past 00:00 Jan 18th Beijing Time, the celebratory pictures from the same Twitter handle has proved the story to be true. Not only will this make flights to and within China so much more bearable, but also the amount of positive feedbacks Chinese carriers will get in the future will jump up a stage.

This is such great news, with China Eastern and Hainan Airlines having a head start, surely the rest of Chinese carriers will follow right after.

Albert K. Field Albert is my name, and travel the world is my game. I began my passion for travel at a very young age, I started this website as a strong means to further explore the world of frequent flyers programs (FFP). The relationship between customers and service providers in the aviation and hospitality industry always seems to be in opposition, however, since the introduction of United Airlines’ Frequent Flyers Programm since 1972*. This has significantly eased the middle spectrum between 2 parties. While the aim of airlines is still to generate more revenue; but for us,as consumers, are also given the opportunity to participate in the bargaining and exploiting from service providers. Living in a world of globalization where big data becomes vital for simulating successful economical activities, most of us will have to travel to other locations whether willingly or unwillingly, while you hearing all this fascinating stories about others, In fact, you too, can blend into the trend. It may not sound like how media illustrates, but indeed there are possibilities for us to have more spontaneous travel without getting held back by financial situation. My website consists of reviews of airline premium cabin products,airport lounges and stay reports of 5-star hotels and their executive lounges across the globe. In addition to all of that, I care the most about their frequent flyers program and loyalty program, which also includes banking partners. Plus, I spontaneously put up reviews and news update regarding premium water brands and restaurants. The purpose of this website is to share all of this information with my audience as well as inviting you to be part of my journey.
