The ban on passengers using e-devices (cell phones, tablets and computers) before takeoff and landing might be removed for flights into and out of Costa Rica.

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) in the United States on Thursday said airlines can allow passengers to use the e-devices during takeoffs and landings on planes that meet certain criteria for protecting aircraft systems from electronic interference.

“Each airline will determine how and when this will happen,” FAA administrator Michael Huerta told reporters at Reagan National Airport.

In Costa Rica, the director of Civil Aviation (Dirección General de Aviación Civil), Alvaro Vargas, said he had not received communication about it, but that the implementation of the measure is at the discretion of each airline.

According to Vargas, each airline knows if e-devies can affect their aircraft nagivation, acknowledging that with the change in the U.S., it also likely mean a change on flights departing from Costa Rica to that country and vice versa.

But don’t expect to be chatting on your cell phone. Cell phones must be in airplane mode.
