This has been a long time coming. I remember seeing documentaries years ago which showed that mobile phones don't interfere with aircraft avionics. Still, when it comes to aircraft, it pays to be cautious and check it out properly first or terrible accidents can happen.
Airline passengers in the European Union (EU) will soon be able to use their phones to full effect in the sky.
The European Commission ruled airlines can provide 5G technology on board planes, alongside slower mobile data.
This could mean flyers will no longer be required to put their phone on airplane mode - though the specifics of how it will be implemented are unclear.
