The airplane crew turns off the main cabin lights during takeoff and landing for the safety of passengers in case of an emergency.

This was told by pilot Patrick Smith, writes the Daily Star. "The dimmed lights allow your eyes to adjust to the darkness in advance so you can find your way around if something happens, the power goes out, and you have to move to the exit in the dark or smoke," the man explained.

In addition, he added that in this case, emergency signs will also be more visible.

"Emergency lighting and signs will also be more visible. They will help you maintain at least a basic sense of orientation," the pilot summarized.
