Samsung Galaxy Note 7 devices prohibited on-board aircraft
Qantas, Fly Pelican, Virgin Australia and Singapore Airlines customers are advised that the carriage of Samsung Galaxy Note 7 devices on-board is prohibited. This is due to concerns regarding potential fire risks from the device’s battery after a number of incidents worldwide, and follows a ban put in place by regulators overseas.
The ban applies to devices being carried onto the aircraft, in carry-on baggage as well as check-in luggage. Other Samsung devices will not be affected.
