 NCAA ALERTS FLIGHT OPERATORS AHEAD OF HARMATTAN SEASON

The Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) has issued an alert to pilots and airlines following a forecast from the Nigerian Meteorological Agency (NIMET) that there will be occurrence of moderate to severe outbreaks of dust in the country during the harmattan period from November 2015 till March 2016.
The regulatory agency said the severe outbreaks of dust can reduce atmospheric visibility, impacting negatively on flight operations.
The agency is asking pilots and airlines to ensure that adequate weather information is obtained from NIMET prior to flight operations.
The NCAA also urged pilots to exercise maximum restraint when adverse weather is observed and ensure that flight operations are scheduled with adequate weather information to minimise delay or cancellation of flight operations.
The agency further gave the warning that all concerned must comply strictly with the laid down regulations.
