Use Airplane Mode on Your Galaxy Tab S2

FAA regulations require you to turn off your tablet or set it to Airplane mode during the flight. Airplane mode turns off the connection to your tablet's Wi-Fi and Bluetooth features. If the airline lets you use Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, you can turn the feature on while in Airplane mode. After you arrive at the destination, you can turn off Airplane mode to use your tablet as usual.

The available screens and settings may vary by wireless service provider and software version.
