Taiwan’s airlines ban Samsung Galaxy Note 7
The decisions of China Airlines and EVA Airways come after the U.S. Federal AviationAdministration said on Thursday it had advised airline passengers not to turn on or charge their Note 7 phones or stow the phones in checked baggage.
China Airlines said it also advised passengers not to turn on or charge their phones during a flight.
On Thursday, three Australian airlines banned passengers from using or charging Samsung Electronics’ Galaxy Note 7 smartphones during flights.
Qantas, its budget unit Jetstar and Virgin Australia said they had not been directed to ban the use of the phone by aviation authorities, but did so as a precaution following Samsung’s recall of the phones in 10 markets.
