KLM Allows the use of Portable Electronic Devices on Board
As of April 1st, KLM will allow the use of portable electronic devices (PED) during all phases of the flight. Any equipment operating with an antenna still must be set in 'flight mode' whenever the aircraft doors are closed.
Portable electronic devices include smartphones, tablets, e-readers, camera’s and small handheld game consoles. This provides more convenience for our customers, as use is currently prohibited during take-off and landing.
This is in alignment with Air France, with whom the use of PED’s during the whole flight has also been recently implemented.
KLM Royal Dutch Airlines was founded in 1919, making it the world’s oldest airline still operating under its original name. In 2004, Air France and KLM merged to form AIR FRANCE KLM. The merger produced the strongest European airline group based on two powerful brands and hubs – Amsterdam Airport Schiphol and Paris Charles de Gaulle. Retaining its own identity, the group focuses on three core businesses: passenger transport, cargo and aircraft maintenance.
In the Netherlands, KLM comprises the core of the KLM Group, which further includes KLM Cityhopper, transavia.com and Martinair. KLM serves all its destinations using a modern fleet and employs over 33,000 people around the world. KLM is a leader in the airline industry, offering reliable operations and customer-oriented products resulting from its policy of enthusiasm and sustainable innovation.
