European Union(EU) Allows Mobile Phones on Airplanes

The 27-member European Union (EU) announced on Monday that it would allow air travelers to use their mobile phones to talk, send text messages or e-mails during their flight in the European airspace.

Users will be charged by their existing service providers according to rates set by them, the airline and their network operator. European officials have warned consumers to expect higher fees because of the costs involved to set up the onboard networks on planes.
