FENIANOS TAKES PRECAUTIONARY MEASURES, MODIFIES FLIGHT ROUTES

Minister of Public Works and Transportation, Youssef Fenianos, met this Wednesday with Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Middle East Airlines (MEA), Mohammed Al-Hout, accompanied by a technical team from the company, the Director General of Civil Aviation, Mohammed Shahabuddeen, and a delegation from the Directorate of Aviation.

According to a statement issued by the office of Minister Finianos, "the meeting tackled the warning addressed by the European Agency for Aviation Safety to the MEA to stay cautious when passing over the eastern Mediterranean amid the possibility of air strikes in Syria within the next 72 hours, what may cause intermittent jamming on wireless navigation devices."

"After deliberating, a precautionary measure was taken to modify flight routes until midnight on Friday, in order to maintain air traffic," Finianos said.
