Samsung Galaxy Note 7 banned

Air Niugini bans Samsung Galaxy Note 7 on its flights

The ban takes effect immediately.

“This action is in view of the recently issued emergency alerts by major aviation regulatory authorities stating that the safety issue regarding Samsung Galaxy Note 7 still persists,” Air Niugini said in a statement.

Samsung recently recalled and replaced all its Galaxy Note 7 following an incident in an aircraft overseas, however, the issue seems to have reoccurred.
