Samsung Galaxy Note 7 ban
Airport road, Simpson Bay - With immediate effect, The Samsung Galaxy Note7 devices will NOT be permitted in checked or carry-on baggage and may not be carried on-board any Winair Flight. Customers travelling with this device will not be permitted to travel. The phones also cannot be shipped as air cargo.
Prior to check-in passengers will be asked if they are carrying this device and if so will not be allowed to check-in until the device has been removed from carry-on or checked luggage. It is the responsibility of the passenger to abide to these instructions and to divest themselves of the phone prior to check-in. Winair will not take responsibility of securing or storing device for the passenger until his/her return.
If at any time a passenger is being observed to be in possession of a Samsung Note7 device, they will be denied check in and/or boarding unless and until the passenger divests themselves and their carry-on and checked baggage of the Samsung Galaxy Note7 device. Passengers absolutely should not pack the phones in their checked luggage. Passengers who attempt to evade the ban by packing their phone in checked luggage are increasing the risk of a catastrophic incident.
We recognize that banning these phones will inconvenience some passengers, but the safety of all those aboard our aircraft must take priority.
Passengers currently traveling with Samsung Galaxy Note7 phones should contact Samsung or their wireless carrier immediately to obtain information about how to return their phones and arrange for a refund or a replacement phone. Samsung has provided guidance for customers about refund and replacement options, as well as how to contact wireless carriers, at http://www.samsung.com/us/note7recall/[external link]. Samsung is also answering customers’ questions at 1-844-365-6197.
WINAIR supports Breast Cancer Awareness this month
Airport Road, October 11, 2016 – Winair has teamed up with the Positive Foundation in their breast cancer awareness efforts to make St. Maarten and other Winair destinations more conscious that early detection is the key and is still the best protection in the fight against breast cancer and saving lives. “Winair is proud to partner with the Positive Foundation to assist in building this awareness and Winair will show their support in several ways”, says President and CEO Michael Cleaver.
This year Winair joined the Pink Parade with 30+ employees proudly and enthusiastically walking behind the Pink Winair banner.
Winair’s pilots will be wearing pink epaulettes during the month of October. Every pilot takes a lot of pride in wearing their epaulettes, which they have earned the right to wear through dedication and hard work. It is with that same pride that they support breast cancer awareness and research by wearing pink epaulettes for a month.
While #FlyPink is a global aviation industry initiative to support organizations around the world that provide research for breast cancer and help save lives, Winair has taken the #FlyPink initiative even higher. Not only will the pilots be wearing pink, all Winair aircraft are outfitted with Pink Ribbons on the fuselage with the intention not only to create awareness on St. Maarten but all other destinations Winair flies.
Lastly Winair has provided the Positive Foundation with ticket vouchers to be used as incentives to the events. So check out the calendar of events, participate and win both the fight against breast cancer and also Winair tickets!
As long as people are still being diagnosed with 3rd or 4th stage breast cancer, the President of the Positive Foundation, Shelly Alphonso sees the need to continue the “Be Breast Aware” movement with a call to action to “Find it, Feel it, Fight it!” - creating a future where early detection is the norm. The Positive Foundation is grateful that Winair has taken this bold move.
