Winair joins a number of airlines who have banned the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 from their flights, because they have been known to explode.
In a statement, the airline said "with immediate effect, the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 will not be permitted in checked or carry-on baggage, and may not be carried on-board any Winair flight."
It stated further "Customers travelling with this device will not be permitted to travel. The phones also cannot be shipped as air cargo"
Prior to check-in, passengers will be asked if they are carrying this device, and if so, will not be allowed to check-in until the device has been removed from carry-on or checked luggage. It is the responsibility of the passenger to abide by these instructions, and to divest themselves of the phone prior to check-in.
Winair says it will not take responsibility for securing or storing these devices for the passengers until they return.
Passengers who attempt to evade the ban by packing their phone in checked luggage, are told that they are increasing the risk of a catastrophic incident.
"We recognize that banning these phones will inconvenience some passengers, but the safety of all those aboard our aircraft must take priority" the airline said.
Regional Airline LIAT has also advised that Samsung Galaxy Note 7 devices will not be permitted in checked or carry-on baggage, and may not be carried on-board any LIAT Flight.
Passengers currently travelling with Samsung Galaxy Note7 phones are advised to contact Samsung or their wireless carrier immediately, to obtain information about how to return their phones and arrange for a refund or a replacement phone. Samsung has provided guidance for customers about refund and replacement options, as well as how to contact wireless carriers.
