New Delhi: No-frills airline SpiceJet on Thursday said passengers are prohibited from carrying Samsung Galaxy Note 7 smartphones in hand, check-in baggages and cargo.
Aviation regulator DGCA, last month, had issued a fresh advisory on Galaxy Note 7 asking passengers not to carry them onboard flights.
This announcement follows the recent DGCA (Directorate General of Civil Aviation) advisory issued to all airlines, it added.
"In light of recent incidents involving Samsung Galaxy Note 7 devices, travelling public and airlines are advised to ensure there is no carriage of Samsung Galaxy Note 7 smartphone devices onboard including as checked in luggage/ cargo on any aircraft on flight to, from or within India," DGCA said in a circular on October 17.
There have been incidents of the smartphone's battery exploding in various countries.
On September 9, the watchdog had completely banned the use of Galaxy Note 7 onboard flights as also carrying them in checked-in baggage.
Many overseas airlines have also imposed similar ban on carrying and use of Galaxy Note 7 onboard flights.
