in News · 12-04-2018 14:28:00 · 0 Comments

European air traffic controllers have issued a “rapid alert” for airlines in the Eastern Mediterranean owing to the possibility of air strikes into Syria.

The European Aviation Security Agency’s (EASA) warning of possible launches of air-to-ground strikes or cruise missiles comes as the US, Britain, France and allies weigh up retaliatory measures to a suspected chemical weapon attack in Syria.
The European Organisation for the Safety of Air Navigation, Eurocontrol, told operators on Wednesday: “Please note that EASA has issued Rapid Alert Notification for Eastern Mediterranean/Nicosia FIR (flight information region) area” stating that: “Due to the possible launch of air strikes into Syria with air-to-ground and/or cruise missiles within the next 72 hours, and the possibility of intermittent disruption of radio navigation equipment, due consideration needs to be taken when planning flight operations in the Eastern Mediterranean/Nicosia FIR area.”
