BA flights on schedule
The Bermuda Civil Aviation Authority has reminded the public that drones are not allowed near the airport as troubles continue at Gatwick airport.
Thomas Dunstan, director general of the BCAA, said: “Commercial and personal unmanned aircraft — drones — can be a serious threat to aircraft, people and buildings, which is why the BCAA has created rules and regulations for operators to follow. If you are gifting or receiving a drone this holiday season make sure you are aware of these regulations so that we can continue to keep Bermuda's airspace safe.”
All regulations can be found on the BCAA website.
A British Airways spokeswoman advised passengers to check on the status of their flights at www.ba.com in the event there have been any changes.
Gatwick airport reopened for flights yesterday morning, but planes were temporarily grounded again yesterday afternoon after further drone sightings.
A total of 155 flights have been cancelled at the airport since Wednesday evening. Hundreds of other flights have been delayed, affecting more than 100,000 passengers.
Police and the British Army were tasked with addressing the issue. While Thursday's flight from Gatwick to Bermuda was cancelled because of the airport closure, British Airways brought a plane to the island from Heathrow to ensure Thursday's flight to Gatwick went ahead.
