Conflict in Yemen results in near-miss off city skies

Two Gulf aircraft, re-routed through Indian airspace as the Yemeni skies were closed due to the ongoing conflict in the Arab nation, came within 25 seconds of colliding with each other on Sunday night, top AAI sources told Mirror.

The sources said the two planes - Etihad Airways flight EY 622 from Abu Dhabi to Seychelles and Emirates Airlines flight EK 706 from Seychelles to Dubai - breached the mandatory separation levels about 100 nautical miles off Mumbai.

While the Mumbai Air Traffic Control is preparing a preliminary report documenting the incident, officials told Mirror the two pilots reported a Resolution Advisory (RA).

An RA is an alert that goes off in the cockpit if there is another object less than 25 seconds from a collision. It also tells the pilot if the object is above him or below him.

"It appears that the TCAS or the traffic collision avoidance system display in the Emirates aircraft cockpit went off, leading to a scare," a senior Airports Authority of India officer investigating the incident told Mumbai Mirror.

A Traffic Collision Avoidance System - or Traffic Alert and Collision Avoidance system (both abbreviated as TCAS, and pronounced tee-kas) - is an aircraft collision avoidance system designed to reduce mid-air collisions between aircraft.

An official said the two aircraft were re-routed through Indian airspace because the Yemeni airspace - controlled by Shia Houthi rebels - was closed for commercial flights.

  1. JENPA tells us ,his incompetent government is reviewing public owed enterprises ....What JENPA does not ell us is that is the first stage in implementing WTO dictates on Seychellois,which consist of PPRIVATING PUBLIC entities like HEALTHCAREMELECTRICITY;EDUCATIONS;HOSPITALS etc... important entities which have National interests and should be protected and always owed by State...This is the new stage of sell out that Pl is preparing for,after siging Seychelles enter in WTO...the world trade dictator.whose laws rape Dmoestic laws.....Sovereignty etc... We are independence and sovereign Pl..that is no External interferences,,selling out our economy to foreigners and make them occupy,ensalve us is a gross human right abuse and pl will be severely punish for that---by death.

  4. Risks of being shot down likeMalaysia Airline over Ukraine......NB also that some Destinations Airsey are forced to service to please Khalfia and Eithad,,posses a great risk to our National company ,,,due to the facts that the potential of seeing errorists use it as Flying boombs is more likely than carriers like United Airways,COntinental and other Europeans Airlines on which there are AIR MARSHAL on board.The Question why not start flying or operating driect to Paris right now?
