37 flights delayed, one runway closed for 10 hours, due to unauthorised drones around Changi Airport

SINGAPORE - Some 37 flights were delayed and one of Changi Airport's two runways was closed for 10 hours, after unauthorised drones were spotted flying in the vicinity of the airport on Tuesday (June 18) and Wednesday, the Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS) said on Wednesday evening.

 

"To ensure the safety of aircraft operations and passengers, the operations of one runway were suspended for short periods of time between 11pm on June 18 and 9am on June 19," said the authority in a statement to the media.

 

The CAAS noted that Changi Airport continued to operate with one runway while operations on the other runway were suspended.

 

The agency added that about 37 scheduled departure and arrival flights were delayed as a result, with one arrival flight being diverted to Kuala Lumpur.

 

A multi-agency team that includes the CAAS, Changi Airport Group, the Singapore Armed Forces and the police has been activated for search and locate operations.

 

Investigations are ongoing, said the authority.

 

"The authorities take a serious view of errant operations of unmanned aircraft which may pose threats to aviation or endanger the personal safety of others, and will not hesitate to take enforcement action against those who contravene regulations," said the CAAS.

 

Under the Unmanned Aircraft (Public Safety and Security) Act, the flying of drones within 5km of airports or military airbases, or at altitudes above 200ft (61m), without a permit is an offence.

 

Those found guilty of violating these regulations face a fine of up to $20,000 or up to 12 months in jail, or both penalties.

 

Drones have disrupted civil aviation elsewhere.

 

In December last year, unauthorised drone activity disrupted flights at London's Gatwick Airport for three days, affecting about 140,000 passengers and 1,000 flights.

 

In January, Senior Minister of State for Transport Lam Pin Min said in Parliament that there had been eight reports of unauthorised drones flying within 5km of Changi Airport over the past three years, though none of these cases involved intrusions into the airport.

 

 

Travel insurance companies must be very angry now. haha.

Kudo to CAAS for the swift decision and action. The impact of a drone coming into the path of a flying plane cannot be ignored. It can potentially cause harm to hundreds of people on the plane and in the vicinity.

 

The intruder (drone operator) MUST be jailed AND fined the max amount for the reckless act!! As the Chinese saying, Kill 1 to warn hundreds. I call for the court to take a tough stand on such offender, no second chance.

The drone operator/owner should be made to pay for the costs of 37 flights delay and 10 hrs of disruption.

 

Failing which, he should be made to serve out the remaining days of his life in prison.

It is a good test case to check if our anti drone team has the ability to tackle such problem. Round 1, they failed.

The flight kenna diverted to KL the passengers really must pui chao nua.

 

Must really catch the moron and whack the drone on his head.

Jam signal perhaps?

 

You dont know exactly at what frequency the drone is tune into. It's quite difficult. Plus there are many other signals being used in the airport for communications and other stuff. You dont want to jam the wrong one. It could cost lives.
