For your personal safety, please return to your seat and fasten your seatbelt whenever the “fasten seatbelt” sign is illuminated. During takeoff and landing, return your table and seat back to their original upright positions. During landing, please do not stand up or leave your seat until the plane has come to a complete stop and the fasten seatbelt sign has been switched off. Because turbulence is often unpredictable, we strongly recommend that you keep your seatbelt fastened at all times while seated. Carry-on luggage should be stowed in the overhead bin or under the seat in front of you. To remind you, interfering with the flight crew during the course of their duties is an offense.
Regulations Governing The Use Of Electronic Devices
Please be reminded that the usage of electronic devices may have different restriction by aircraft or destination. Passengers are recommended to pay attention to cabin crew’s announcement and safety demonstration.
The Civil Aviation Act of the ROC stipulates that no passenger shall use any device that may interfere with aircraft navigation and communication systems. Any person who violates the Act shall be subject to imprisonment of up to five years or a fine of up to NT$150,000. For offenses leading to a serious or deadly outcome, the law allows for a punishment of life imprisonment. All passengers must observe the following rules, which apply from the time the cabin doors are closed until the time the doors are reopened. An announcement will be made informing passengers to this effect.

Transmitting devices must be switched to non-cellular or “Airplane/Flight mode" with Wi-Fi turned off from door closure until the plane has landed and cleared the runway. This policy applies to flights operating within Taiwan, R.O.C. and select international locations. The cabin crew will advise passengers if it is necessary to turn off small PEDs according local regulation.
