AIRLINE Regional Express has announced a ban on the Samsung Galaxy Note7 on all its flights.
The airline has prohibited the device on board Rex flights due to safety concerns.
A spokesperson for the airline said the ban covered the original version and the replacement version.
In line with the American Federal Aviation Administration ban on the carriage of the Samsung Galaxy Note7 effective from October 15, and advice from Samsung Australia, Rex yesterday issued a directive to ban the carriage of these devices on its aircraft.
The Civil Aviation Safety Authority has also today responded to Rex’s request for clarification by issuing an immediate ban.
Passengers are advised not to bring these devices to an airport when travelling as the device cannot travel under any circumstances.
