I haven't found any information regarding NFC on airplanes, but: Short-range Bluetooth devices including keyboards and headphones have been allowed on flights for some time. Since October 13, airlines flying under FAA rules can even allow Short-range Bluetooth connections during all flight phases. A typical NFC connection has a range of about 20cm - Jolla's TOH-NFC chip even less than 1cm. So even if you switch TOH during your flight, that shouldn't be a problem at all and doesn't fall under any regulations.

So even if you switch TOH during your flight, that flight and activate NFC, it shouldn't be a problem at all and doesn't seem to fall under any regulations.
