Due to safety concerns, travelling with a Samsung Galaxy Note 7 on-board Hardy Aviation & Fly Tiwi aircraft is prohibited.

The ban applies to devices being carried onto the aircraft, in carry-on baggage as well as check-in luggage.  Other Samsung devices are not affected.

This ban is effective from Monday 24 October, 2016 until further notice, for ALL FLIGHTS and is due to concerns regarding potential fire risk from the device's battery after a number of incidents worldwide.

It also follows a ban put in place by other Australian and International operators and Overseas regulators.
