Beginning May 1, passengers flying on Austrian Airlines to any destination, on any aircraft will be able to use their personal electronic devices during the entire flight.

This applies to any smartphone, laptop, tablet or other devices that weigh under 1kg  (2.20 lbs).

The devices must be switched to ‘Airplane Mode’ so that there is no signal transmission taking place.  Also, phone calls need to be completed by the time the cabin doors close even though the aircraft is still on the ground.
