PROHIBITION ON USE OF PORTABLE ELECTRONIC DEVICES IN AIRCRAFT
Almost all portable electronic devices used by aircraft crew and passengers have not been designed to the stringent standards normally applied to aircraft equipment. By using portable electric devices in aircraft both in flight and on the ground, the radio signals transmitted from these devices can interfere with the navigational and communication equipment that may jeopardize aircraft safety. Therefore being Myanmar as the member of ICAO contracting states, Department of Civil Aviation has decided to follow the international convention and prohibit the use of portable electronic devices in public transport aircraft during the entire flight.
Portable electronic devices include, but only not limited to the following equipment.
1. Mobile telephone
2. Cellular telephone
3. Portable video equipment
4. Laptop or portable PC without printer
5. Electronic games, electronic calculators and electronic shavers
6. Cassette/CD/DVD/minidisk players (used electronic headphones only),
MP3 players (used electronic headphone only).
