Korea Places Temporary Ban on Air-flight use of Samsung Galaxy Note

Following the American Federal Aviation Agency issuing “strong warnings” against turning on, charging or checking in the latest samsung Galaxy Note 7 on flights, the South Korean government’s Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport has placed a temporary ban on in-flight use of the new smartphone.

In a released statement, the Ministry said it was “recommending” users of the Galaxy Note 7 phablets keep the phone turned off at all times while aboard the airplane and also not to recharge the phone in flight, reports Yonhap.

The transportation ministry also asked people not to put their Galaxy Note 7 phones in their checked-in luggage.

“Many other countries have made similar recommendations banning the use of the Galaxy Note 7 on flights. The government decided to follow suit partly because the use of the phone might create unnecessary fears for other passengers,” a ministry official said, while speaking on the condition of anonymity.
