UAE Airspace changes 7 December 2017 - Aircraft Operator action required
“This is a reminder with reference to the below email regarding the UAE Airspace restructuring project starting on the 7th of December 2017.
As per the latest update of the UAE-AIP [ref. https://www.gcaa.gov.ae/en/ais/Pages/default.aspx section GEN 1.5 (220.127.116.11.3)], a grace period of 16 hours will be provided starting from the AIRAC Cycle (i.e. 00:00 UTC). Hence aircraft arriving on the non-updated database will not be permitted to enter the UAE Airspace after 16:00 UTC on that day.
Consequently, to avoid delays and flight diversions, please ensure a timely update of your operating aircraft FMS accordingly.
Please contact Jeppesen Vendor Relations for further advice and documentation.
