Police arrested three passengers on an Alitalia Linee Aeree Italiance flight after they refused to switch off their mobile phones, according to Italian media on Sunday.

ROME, Jan. 20 (Xinhua) -- Captain of the flight, about to take off Saturday from Milan, asked three times for passengers to shut off their phones after he found the aircraft navigation system was affected by cell phone signals.

But the three passengers failed to comply with the request, leading to captain's decision to abort take-off.

Police boarded the plane and arrested the three identified by the flight crew. They are confronted with the prosecution for violating safety regulations and will face up to three months in jail if found guilty.

The incident delayed the flight for one hour and a half.
