Why Is It Important to Turn Off Your Phone While in the Plane

  1. 1
    Phone causes a lot of interference to the signal within the plane.
    As you are already aware of, communication with airport control is very crucial for a smooth flight. This is especially the case for takeoff and landing, which are considered to be the most dangerous moments during a flight. Just imagine if all passengers use their mobile phones. The signal will be totally disturbed and the communication system will be blocked because of this. In other words, this is a rule that also benefits you in terms of safety.

  2. 2
    Use of mobile phones is not only disturbing to the technical communication system within the plane, it also distracts the passenger.
    Although accidents and emergencies are hoped not to happen in any flight, all passengers are still advised to be alert all the time in case these do happen. If you are using your mobile phone such as when you surf or exchange text messages with someone else, your attention is simply taken away from your surroundings. Therefore, in case there are any emergencies, you are prone not to be able to react appropriately or follow the evacuation instructions. This is similar to the concept of dimming the cabin lights during takeoff or landing. This is done not really to make you feel comfortable or to enjoy the city view from your window, it is in fact a safety measure to keep your eyes adjusted to darkness in case emergencies happen. In other words, the regulations within the plane are not to be ignored, even though it may look not too serious or silly, because these are all intended for your safety as a passenger.

  3. 3
    The area inside the plane is not too big, therefore, if there are too many phone calls happening at the same time, it can be very annoying for the passengers because it will be very noisy.
    Everyone wants to have a peaceful flight, especially if it's a long-haul flight. Therefore, the flight crew will try their best to reduce factors that can cause distractions.
