RwandAir announces flight disruptions to and from Dubai due to severe weather #rwanda #RwOT


In a statement on Wednesday, April 17, the management urged the affected passengers to check their emails regularly for updates about the interruptions.

'Due to severe weather conditions in Dubai (DXB), we're experiencing flight disruptions to and from Dubai. Passengers are advised to check their emails regularly for updates,' the airline stated.

This comes as heavy rains continue to batter Gulf States, leading to floods, including at Dubai International Airport, one of the world's busiest airports.

Earlier on Wednesday morning, the airport authorities described the weather conditions as 'very challenging,' urging passengers 'not to come to the airport unless absolutely necessary.'

'Flights continue to be delayed and diverted. Please check your flight status directly with your airline. We are working hard to recover operations as quickly as possible in very challenging conditions,' the management added.

Kenya's Kenya Aiways (KQ) and Fly Emirates are among airlines that have been forced to cancel flights due to heavy storms.

'We are monitoring the situation and are in close contact with Dubai authorities to minimise the inconvenience and disruption to our customers' travels,' KQ said while announcing the cancellation of two flights on Wednesday.

Fly Emirates, while asking its customers to rebook their flights said, 'Dubai customers with flights scheduled for today (17 April) are advised not to go to DXB, as check-in remains suspended for all flights. Your safety is our top priority.'

At least 18 people have been reported dead due to the floods in Oman, even as weather forecasts predict further storms across the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

Schools across the UAE shut before the storms, with experts saying that the rains, which began on Monday, are equal to a year and a half's worth of rain for the desert region.
