Dubai International resumes operations after reports of ‘unauthorised drone activity’


Operations at Dubai International airport have returned to normal after some flights had to be halted due to reported  ‘unauthorised drone activity.’

The reported activity caused officials at the airport to delay some of its flights by around 30 minutes.

The airport’s media team took to Twitter to announce the news that normal operations had resumed.

It stated: “Dubai Airports confirms that operations at Dubai International are back to normal after less than 30 minutes of delay due to unauthorized drone activity.”

Adding: “Authorities warned that flying drones without obtaining permission is subject to legal liability as per UAE laws.”

Again though, like the incidents at Gatwick and Heathrow and other prior to those, no footage or imagery of the drone reported to have caused the disruption has emerged.

The disruption occurred at around 10am local time in Dubai, which is 6am in the UK.
