Qatar Airways has now revised the policy for the use of Portable Electronic Devices (PEDs) onboard in line with the latest developments in the industry. This will enable our customers to use their e-readers, tablets and smartphones etc. from gate to gate i.e. including taxiing, take-off and landing without a risk to safety.
This safety guidance as well as FAQ’s refers to PEDs used in non-transmitting mode, better known as 'Flight mode or Airplane mode' that allows, for the first time, the use of PEDs during the journey.
On certain aircrafts, customers can enjoy Wi-Fi connectivity when the service is available. Customers are still obliged to follow cabin crew and flight deck crew instructions at all times.
