Drone halts traf­fic at air­port

The Myanmar Times - - World -

A drone forced Dubai’s in­ter­na­tional air­port, one of the world’s busiest, to halt air traf­fic for an hour and a half on October 29, the third such in­ci­dent in less than five months. Air space around the air­port was closed from 7:25pm to 8:49pm “due to unau­tho­rised drone ac­tiv­ity re­sult­ing in flight diver­sions”, said op­er­a­tor Dubai Air­ports. Dubai Air­ports stressed in a tweet that safety was its top pri­or­ity and re­minded drone op­er­a­tors that that it is for­bid­den to fly them within 5 kilo­me­tres (3.1 miles) of any air­port.
