PIA Spokesperson Danyal Gillani tweeted to inform passengers about the advisory. He also urged passengers not to carry the expensive cell-phone even in their luggage.

Couple of days ago, the US Federal Aviation Administration strongly urged passengers not to turn on or charge Samsung Galaxy Note 7 smartphones on aircraft following recent reports of explosions from faulty batteries.

The South Korean smartphone maker suffered a blow as reports of exploding batteries forced the firm to delay shipments of Galaxy Note 7 smartphones, and knocked $7 billion off its market value.

“In light of recent incidents and concerns raised by Samsung about its Galaxy Note 7 devices, the Federal Aviation Administration strongly advises passengers not to turn on or charge these devices on board aircraft and not to stow them in any checked baggage,” the FAA said in a statement.

Faults with the new premium flagship device could deal a major blow to the South Korean giant, which was counting on the Galaxy Note 7 to maintain its strong mobile earnings momentum against Apple Inc’s new iPhones.


Several people posted images and videos of charred Galaxy Note 7s online and said their phones had caught on fire.
