Samsung Sets Up In-Airport Kiosks to Aid in Note7 Returns

Samsung LogoSamsung has begun accepting Galaxy Note7 returns at airports in several countries.

The action follows the recent ban from the Dept. of Transportation that makes it a federal crime to bring the Note7 on any airplane. Other countries have put similar bans in place. Samsung began accepting Note7 returns at airports on its home market of Korea, followed by Australia and some locations in the U.S., including San Francisco International Airport.

The idea is to help prevent travelers from carrying the Note7 onto planes, which poses a safety risk, while also providing them with a replacement device (even if only temporarily).

The booths are located before security checkpoints at “high-traffic” terminals. Samsung has not provided a list for U.S. airports, nor said if it will expand beyond those already in operation.
