Following the Nigerian Meteorological Agency, NIMET, forecast on the occurrence of moderate to severe outbreaks of dust in the country during this harmattan period, the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority, NCAA, has advised the airline crew to ‎ensure that adequate departure, en route weather information are obtained from NIMET prior to flight operations.
The NCAA in a statement signed by the director general, Capt. Usman Muhtar noted that severe outbreaks of dusts can reduce atmospheric visibility significantly and thus impact negatively on flight operations.
Capt. Muhtar said in the statement that the circular is issued to all Airline Operators and Pilots to “ensure that adequate departure, en route and destination weather information are obtained from NIMET prior to flight operations, exercise maximum restraint when adverse weather is observed or forecast by NIMET and also to ‎ensure that flight operations are scheduled with adequate weather information from NIMET to minimise delay or cancellation of flight operations.
The NCAA boss advised that all concerned are required to always strictly comply with laid down Regulations and State minima.
