Airline passengers are permitted to carry most portable electronic devices on board aircraft, but regulators and airlines are having to remain flexible in their guidance on the matter. Last year, airlines around the world banned the Hoverboard due to concern over its potentially combustible lithium ion battery. This year, passengers are being warned about the Samsung Galaxy Note 7, which was recalled after reports emerged of devices exploding.
In this episode of #PaxEx TV, we discuss how the Galaxy Note 7 news is serving as a reminder to passengers about the importance of adopting a pre-flight checklist for their devices.
We also uncover brand new mapping technology for airports and passengers with Seth Miller, and Maryann Simson gets to try out a passenger experience unlike any other at the Gyrocopter Flying Club in the UK.
