Can You Use Bluetooth on a Plane?



The Use of Bluetooth on Airplanes​

While using Bluetooth on an aeroplane is generally acceptable, it's important to adhere to the rules established by the airlines. The use of Bluetooth may be prohibited during takeoff and landing by some aeroplanes, however many airlines permit its use once the aircraft reaches cruising altitude. To ensure compliance, it is best to refer to the airline's unique Bluetooth usage policy.

As long as it does not obstruct the communication systems of the aircraft, Bluetooth technology is commonly used in aeroplanes. Numerous additional wireless devices use the 2.4 GHz band, which is the same frequency that Bluetooth uses. However, compared to other wireless technologies, Bluetooth devices have a relatively low range, which reduces the chance of interference. Airlines have decided that Bluetooth is safe to use while flying as a result.

While it is allowed to use Bluetooth devices on airplanes, I still do not agree with using it during the flight. Before the flight starts, crews will remind us to turn off our phones or switch to airplane mode for our safety. I prefer following their rules.
