Airlines refuse to carry smartphones from VIVO.
The airlines have announced an embargo on the transport of smartphones from the smartphone manufacturer VIVO, which self-ignited the device at Hong Kong airport. Current companies such as: Lufthansa Cargo, IAG Cargo, GoAir, Cathay Pacific and others have introduced a ban and these transport companies refuse to transport electronic products from the manufacturer VIVO, which contain lithium-ion batteries. They were probably responsible for the incident. It is not yet known when the ban will end, as the case is under investigation.
For a smartphone manufacturer, this is also an obstacle to the sale of their devices, as air carriers refuse to transport their products. VIVO is also working to clarify the incident, setting up an investigation team and working with local authorities to find out the cause of the fire. For the fifth largest producer, this is a hard blow to the sale of smartphones.
Assistant Director of Security at the Airport – David Brennan commented on the incident that the smartphone of the manufacturer in question may not be behind the fire. It is also theorized that other commodities that could have caused a fire could be on the same pallet as the shipments of smartphones. Of course, this is still a serious security incident that threatens airport traffic.
For the time being, Vivo has to rely on other modes of transport that are not as fast as air transport. This case is also reminiscent of a case with Samsung’s Galaxy Note 7 smartphone, which was also caused by self-igniting battery problems, prompting the manufacturer to discontinue production of the Note 7 line.
