Flights at Dubai Airport delayed due to a drone

Flights were delayed to a drone being found in the airspace at Dubai Airport. Air traffic was suspended for over an hour on Saturday morning causing flight diversions and departures to be delayed.

It was confirmed that the majority of planes already in the air were diverted to the Dubai World Central Airport

This followed a similar incident that happened in January where air traffic was stopped for almost an hour at Dubai Airport due to a drone. It was reported that the airport had lost $55 million due to the misuse of recreational drones.
