Important Note Regarding Samsung Galaxy Note 7

As of 15 October, the U.S. Department of Transportation has banned Samsung Galaxy Note 7 mobile phones from being brought on board any aeroplane in the USA. It may not be stored in checked baggage or taken on board.

Wexas Travel Management strongly advises that travellers do not fly on any airline with the device, widely reported to be faulty to the point of human danger (included refurbished devices).

Individual airlines, including Qantas, Singapore Airlines, Air New Zealand, Jetstar, Lufthansa and others have all banned the device, and we expect more aviation bodies, including the UK's Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) to enforce the ban in coming days.
