Prohibition of Samsung Galaxy Note 7 on ALL Ethiopian Airlines flights

Dear Customers,

 In view of the ban of the Galaxy Note 7 device by the US Department of Transportation, Ethiopian Airlines would like to inform customers that the Galaxy Note 7 smartphone will be prohibited from being brought on board all our flights on person, in carry-on baggage or checked-in baggage with effect from 20 October, 2016.”

As per the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and Department of Transportation (DOT) statement, banning these phones from airlines will inconvenience some passengers, but the safety of all those aboard an aircraft must take priority. Thank you for your attention and understanding!

Yours Sincerely,

Ethiopian Airlines
