Korean Air has announced that it will allow the use of portable electronic devices uninterrupted throughout the duration of all flights. The Korean Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport evaluated and approved the usage of the devices for all domestic and international flights, effective March 1. This means passengers can use smartphones, PCs, electronic books, and MP3 players for the entire flight, even during landing and take-off. Heavier devices, such as full-sized laptops, should be stowed during taxi, take-off, and landing. Signal transmitting devices such as radio or walkie-talkies are not permitted in-flight. The airline does maintain the right to restrict the usage of personal electronic devices such as when the aircraft is landing in low visibility or the device is affecting a navigation system.
