So the world’s busiest international airport (DXB) was forced to halt flights on friday morning after an “unauthorized” drone was spotted above the terminal. All flights were grounded at the Dubai international airport(DXB) between 10:13 a.m. local time and 10:45 a.m. due to a drone in the “airport atmosphere,”.
Although flights have resumed at the airport which is also home to major airlines including the UAE’s flag carrier, Emirates. The airport (DXB) is the world’s busiest international airport and also the “third busiest” by passenger traffic behind atlanta and beijeng, it is reported to process around 88 million passengers anually.
The government media office tweeted: “Authorities warned that flying drones without obtaining permission is subject to legal liability as per UAE laws.”
A drone over a runway at Gatwick Airport forced the airport to close for more than 32 hours in late December, and it happened again two days later.
Gatwick is the second-busiest airport in the UK, handling over 45 million passengers each year. British police later said that some drone sightings during the Gatwick closure crisis may have been of their own surveillance drones.
