Sinai warnings extended due to flight safety concerns

Posted 28 May 2018 · Add Comment

The European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) extended a security warning for the Egypt Sinai Peninsula to 25 November 2018 due to continuing concern for flight safety.

 The initial EASA bulletin for Egypt was issued on November 13, 2014 and the initial version of the current bulletin CZIB-2017-09 was issued on November 27, 2017.

In the meantime new or updated Notams have been issued by the United Kingdom, USA, Germany and Egypt.

Most governments advise operators to avoid flying below FL250 or FL260 in this area. The Egypt Notam does not contain such a warning, but does state there may be GPS jamming around Cairo International Airport. RNAV (GNSS) approaches should not be planned at Cairo Airport
