TOTAL BAN ON SAMSUNG GALAXY NOTE 7 FROM ALL SCOOT AND TIGERAIR FLIGHTS

From 12.00am of 16 October 2016 (Singapore time), Scoot and Tigerair will be banning the carriage of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 from all our flights. The device cannot be carried on guests’ persons or in their hand-carry baggage, nor can it be checked in or shipped as air cargo. Anyone found in possession of the device will be denied boarding.

This follows the ban on all Samsung Galaxy Note 7 smartphone devices from air transportation in the US by the US Department of Transport and the Federal Aviation Administration, due to concerns over potential fire risk from the device’s battery.

We thank all guests for your kind understanding.

The Scoot Team
