    Leading airlines ban exploding smartphone.

    A number of leading airlines have now banned Samsung’s troubled Galaxy Note 7 smartphone over the fire risks posed by the device’s lithium-ion battery. This is not a blanket ban and all routes are not affected so anyone planning on travelling with this phone in their possession should check with the individual airline prior to travel.

    The airlines imposing bans and restrictions include:

    Nippon Airways

    Japan Airlines

    Air Berlin



    British Airways


    Cathay Pacific

    Singapore Airlines

    China Airlines

    EVA Air


    Korean Air

    Australian and New Zealand airlines have banned the phone from all planes
