Samsung Galaxy Note7 smartphones banned at Australian airports

There is a total ban on flights for the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 phone. If you plan to travel, please make sure you do not take a Galaxy Note 7 with you.

Samsung plans to collect banned Galaxy Note 7 smartphones at Australian airports.

Samsung revealed it would set up a series of customer service points at domestic and international terminals in Australia to prevent their customers flying with the banned Galaxy Note7 smartphones.

The former flagship device, recalled after a series of fires was banned from being used or even carried on flights by Qantas, Virgin Australia, Jetstar, and Tigerair over the weekend due to concerns it could catch fire while in the air. Virgin Australia even advised Note7 users not to bring these devices to an airport when travelling.

The total ban in Australia followed a similar move by the United States Federal Aviation Authority.
