American passengers will get to use electronic devices starting on Monday afternoon

American Airlines' passengers will get to use their iPads and mp3 players for the entire flight starting on Monday afternoon.

The Fort Worth-based airlines said it received approval from the Federal Aviation Administration to allow customers to use portable electronic devices even during takeoff and landing.

"We know that our customers have wanted additional access to their personal devices on their flights, and we've been working with the FAA for some time to make this a reality," said American senior vice president of customer service Jon Snook.

Last week, the FAA relaxed rules that had previously required passengers to turn off all electronic devices while an aircraft was taking off or landing and had not reached an altitude over 10,000 feet.

American and its regional carrier, American Eagle, will begin allowing passenger use of electronic devices at 5 p.m. CST on Monday.
