Restricted electric devices on aircrafts
Radio waves are generated in places where alternating-current passes. Electromagnetic waves are a flow of electricity generated when electric and magnetic fields combine and travel through the air, causing malfunction to onboard installations. For that reason, we restrict the use of electric (electronic) devices on aircrafts.
- The use of electric (electronic) devices on aircrafts is restricted while aircrafts are grounded as well as when in the air.
- The use of mobile phones on flights is prohibited. Please remember to switch off mobile phones when passenger entry doors are closed.
- If you have restricted electric (electronic) devices in your checked baggage, all devices other than the non-restricted items listed below should be switched off before boarding.
Under Aviation Law (part of the Law has been changed following the announcement of amendments established by the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism as of April 1, 2011), the use of electronic devices on the aircraft is restricted as stated below. Under the law, any violations, including "using a mobile phone and other devices" may result in the levy of a penalty of up to ¥ 500,000 against any offender who continues or repeats these actions after being asked to cease by the pilot. Please switch off restricted electronic devices when cabin attendants request to do so after passenger entry doors are closed. Also, please switch off electronic devices in your checked baggage.
