Airlines ban the Samsung Galaxy Note 7

South African Airways (SAA) has taken a decision to prohibit the Samsung Galaxy Note 7. The decision has been taken based on safety considerations in the interests of passengers, crew and property.

The decision will be effective on all SAA flights globally from Wednesday 19 October 2016. The Galaxy Note 7 device is prohibited completely and may not be carried by travellers on their persons, in carry-on baggage, in checked in baggage or as cargo. The recall of the device by the manufacturer based on safety considerations, and the announcements made by regulatory authorities, has left SAA with no option but to comply. The airline will accept no liability for devices that may be confiscated in the process of ensuring compliance with the prohibition. SAA’s general conditions of carriage still apply. SAA apologises to all its customers for the inconvenience.

In addition, customers are to leave their Samsung Galaxy Note 7 at home when flying with British Airways (operated by Comair) or kulula.com
