10 planes from Dubai, diverted: What exactly happened?
The UAE was affected by a dust storm on Sunday, and the skylines of Abu Dhabi and Dubai were obscured by a hazy grey haze.
Over Abu Dhabi and Dubai International Airports, visibility decreased to less than 500 metres, according to the National Centre of Meteorology (NCM) https://mobile.ncm.ae/.
In an effort to lessen the effects of the disruption and quickly resume normal operations, Dubai Airports is collaborating closely with airlines and all of our service partners.
For any trouble this may have caused, we apologise to our customers, the airport manager added.
The weather, according to Flydubai, “delayed a number of our inbound and outgoing flights.”
According to a flydubai spokeswoman, “We are still keeping an eye on the situation and apologise for any difficulty the bad weather may have caused our passengers.”
Visibility reduced to less than 500 metres in certain places, hiding notable structures like the Burj Khalifa and Ain Dubai. Five emirates had heavy rain during the day.
Over the following four days, rain and dusty conditions are predicted by the official weather bulletin.
