Amazon has announced a discount on its Kindle range of e-readers and tablets to celebrate the latest FCC regulation that allows the use of electronic gadgets during almost the entire flight envelope. The Kindle Fire benefits from a 15 percent discount across its entire range while the basic Kindle ereaders too is now cheaper by $10 from its original $69 price. The special reduced prices are however only valid for Monday only.
“We’ve been fighting for our customers on this issue for years, and we are thrilled by the FAA’s recent decision,” said an Amazon executive in a statement.
The new ruling marks an end to the usual practice of switching off electronic devices during take-off and landing phases, something that was often not followed. No more of such regulations now exists.
