That means travelers also can not carry the device in checked bags or carry-on luggage.

Singapore Airlines said on its Facebook page that "the Galaxy Note7 smartphone will be prohibited from being brought on board all our flights in person, in carry-on baggage or checked-in baggage with effect from October 16".

The devices, which have been the subject of a global recall by the manufacturer after a number of reported incidents of them catching fire due to a fault with the lithium battery - may not be transported by passengers or crew on their person, in carry-on baggage, or in checked baggage on flights to, from, or within the Commonwealth of The Bahamas, the Department said on Sunday night.

A number of foreign-based airlines adopted the U.S. ban on Saturday, including Sydney-based Qantas Airways, Hong Kong-based Cathay Pacific Airways and Rome-based Alitalia.

The Note 7 crisis is set to cost the South Korean electronics giant billions in lost profits, and is a blow to a firm that prides itself on the quality production of cutting-edge technology.

"We recognize that banning these phones from airlines will inconvenience some passengers, but the safety of all those aboard an aircraft must take priority", Foxx said in a statement.

Authorities in Canada and Hong Kong have also prohibited all of these devices from being taken on flights in their countries. "We are taking this additional step because even one fire incident inflight poses a high risk of severe personal injury and puts many lives at risk".

Air Berlin has banned the phones with immediate effect.

Earlier in September, Etihad, Emirates and flydubai issued statements about enforcing only a temporary ban on the in-flight use and battery charging of these devices on their flights, but now passengers can not even bring them on board.

Airlines in the United States banned it last week, with the result that carriers flying to the U.S. had to also prevent people from taking large smartphones on board.

Emirates: The Dubai-based airline brought in a complete ban on the smartphone in September due to safety concerns.
