US carriers no longer have to warn passengers about Samsung’s Galaxy Note7


WASHINGTON DC: The US carriers will no longer have to stop passengers from notifying about Samsung’s Galaxy Note7 prior to boarding the aircraft.

“The U.S. Department of Transportation’s decision today to remove the requirement for the airlines to make specific pre-boarding notification reflects the exceptionally high rates of participation in the U.S. Note7 Refund and Exchange Program,” Samsung said on its US website.

“By leveraging our digital technology to target each device, we’ve had over 96 percent of Galaxy Note7 phones returned to date.

“Together with our wireless carriers, we have taken aggressive action to limit the remaining phones’ ability to work as mobile devices, further enhancing participation in the recall. We thank the Department of Transportation, airlines, airports, our partners and Note7 owners for their patience and support during this time,” it added.

Airlines across the world warned passengers from carrying Note7 onboard aircraft after reports of handsets exploding created worries among airlines and passengers.
