A survey carried out by You Gov on behalf of the Business Travel Show highlights that nearly half of people do not want mobile phones on flights.
Carried out between October 1 and October10 this year, 65% of people strongly disagreed that mobiles should be allowed, while only 23% agreed or strongly agreed that it was a good idea.
”The results of the Business Travel Show/You Gov survey make it explicitly clear that the majority of travellers-particularly business travellers- do not want mobile phones on aircraft,” commented Business Travel Show event director David Chapple.
He added: ”Figures support the feelings of the International Airline Passengers Association, so it”s interesting to read that airlines such as Air France, BMI and Ryanair is already planning to install and test phone masts ahead of receiving the green light from the Civil Aviation Authority.
”We are keen to see if in-flight mobile use does take off or whether passenger action will ground it.”
On February 7 at 14:15 the Business Travel Show conference programme will debate the power that technology has on improving the experience of frequent travellers.
The debating panel will be made up of business travellers, business travel buyers and industry representatives.
The Business Travel Show will take place at Earls Court 2 in London, starting February 5, 6 and 7, 2008.
