Permission to use certain electronic devices during flight will vary depending on the airline and aircraft that you travel. Some aircraft are configured to tolerate the use of certain devices during all phases of flight, while others may have restrictions due to possible interference with flight safety systems.

To ensure safety, it is important that passengers are informed by the operator about the acceptable devices and when those can be used. The Jamaica Civil Aviation Authority mandates that all passengers comply with the airlines’ policy regarding the use of electronic devices on board the aircraft. Failure to do so may result in penalties.
