Travel alert for guests travelling with Samsung Galaxy Note 7

Following the global recall by Samsung of its Samsung Galaxy Note 7 smartphones, Etihad Airways is enforcing a total ban on these devices on board its aircraft, as some phones have been installed with faulty lithium batteries, which present a risk of combustion and fire. 

Guest must not carry these smartphones in their checked-in baggage, in cabin baggage, or on their person. 

Etihad Airways apologises for the inconvenience caused. However, the safety and security of our passengers and staff is of the utmost importance.
