LAN and TAM, both members of the LATAM Airlines Group, announced that all their passengers can maintain their mobile devices (smartphones, tablets) turned on in “airplane mode” throughout the flight, including during take-off and landing.

This new option for passengers will gradually be implemented in the aircraft that make up the group’s fleet and starting today with aircraft that operate flights within Ecuador, allowing passengers to have access to work, entertainment and information on their devices during all stages of the flight.

“At both LAN and TAM, we are always concerned in optimizing each stage of our flights. Each day, more and more people use mobile technologies and we strive hard to be the pioneers in any innovation that can be implemented in our aircraft. Allowing uninterrupted use of mobile devices on our aircraft is in line with this principle and is an important investment to improve the travel experience of our passengers,” said Jerome Cadier, VP Marketing of the LATAM Group.

The project was executed by LAN and TAM in partnership with the aviation authorities of each country where the group companies operate, in order to carry out the tests required to approve all their aircraft, thus maintaining the highest safety standards.
