RwandAir bans Samsung Galaxy Note 7

Sept 22, 2016: National flag carrier, RwandAir has banned Samsung Galaxy Note 7 mobile phones cargo on its flights. RwandAir says the move is a safety measure after Samsung recalled the phone last week after reports emerged of the device exploding during or after charging. The airline head of marketing and promotion, Patrick Manzi, said in a statement that in light of recent concerns raised by Samsung about Galaxy Note 7 devices, it has banned the transportation of Samsung Galaxy note 7 mobile phones as cargo aboard its flights. Airline passengers have been warned by US authorities not to switch on or charge their Samsung Galaxy Note 7 phones when on board the plane. The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) also advised against packing the phones into any checked-in luggage. Qantas and Virgin Australia have also told customers not to charge or use the phone during flights.
