Scandinavian Airlines (SAS) today annouced that they are the first airline to allow the use of some mobile phone functions during flight. The airline will allow passengers to operate phones in so-called flight-safe mode. The feature, also called "airplane mode", is included in some newer mobile phones. The special mode prevents sending or receiving radio signals - thereby protecting flight safety. SAS passengers who have mobile phones equipped with the flight-safe mode can use them as work tools or for entertainment onboard, effective immediately. Other airlines currently prohibit the use of all mobile phones during flight, regardless of mode.
