Earlier today, Cebu Pacific issued an official advisory to all Samsung Galaxy Note 7 owners and passengers.
Following the massive worldwide recall of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7, Cebu Pacific prohibits the usage and charging of their passenger’s Note 7 devices during the whole flight. Furthermore, stowing of Note 7 devices within checked-in baggage is also prohibited.
The airline published the announcement due to safety concerns following numerous customer complaints of exploding Note 7 batteries worldwide. Several airlines around the globe also made similar advisories including Etihad Airways (UAE), Singapore Airlines, Australia’s Qantas, and Virgin Australia.

Here’s the full advisory published via Cebu Pacific’s official website:
In light of the recent recall of Samsung Galaxy Note 7 devices due to safety issues, Cebu Pacific (CEB) advises passengers that the usage and charging of the device are prohibited onboard all CEB and Cebgo flights beginning today, September 11, 2016, until further notice.
Galaxy Note 7 devices must also not be stowed in checked baggage, but may be hand-carried as long as the device is turned off at all times inside the aircraft.
We sincerely hope for our passengers’ full cooperation, as the safety of everyone onboard our flights remains our utmost priority.
