Kuwait Dusty Weather, March 2017




Kuwait: Aviation traffic is normal despite a wave of dust that has been surging in the country, Civil Aviation said Monday.

Spokesperson of Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) Mansour Al-Hashimi told KUNA that air navigation and traffic continues as normal since wind speed and horizontal visibility are still within safe navigation limits.

However, he pointed out current visibility reaching 1,600 meters, noting that arrival and departure flights from commercial airline companies were not affected.

He added that current visibility is at 7,000 meters, noting minimum visibility for takeoff and landing is between 300 to 500 meters.
