We have just issued a Level 1 Ops Alert for:

icon-strike.png MRZZ/ Costa Rica :

Category: Strike


Situation:
Costa Rica is preparing for a nationwide strike on Monday, which may last several days. We have spoken with handlers and airports in the country who do not anticipate major impact, but there is potential for fuel to become an issue if they strike, as well as blocked roads to airport. San Jose focal point. Monitor closely if planning ops to MROC, MRLB this coming week.

Syria


We have published Note to Members #31 - Eastern Mediterranean Airspace Risk. On Monday a Russian aircraft was misidentified and shot down by Syria. We believe this changes the airspace risk picture significantly. There is a clear risk to civil aircraft operating on airways UL620, UW74, UR18, and UP62. In simple terms, if you find yourself planned overwater east of Cyprus, reconsider your route.

With planned runway and terminal constructions, the airport will be closing from July 27, 2019 until Oct 27, 2019. A large portion of traffic will have to operate through LIMC/Milan Malpensa instead, which already stands as the second busiest airport in Italy. More info.

icon-airport.png NZCH
Christchurch New Zealand


There is an new FBO - GCH Aviation Jet Centre, located at the threshold of RWY02. Hangarage for four G650 size aircraft is available on site. Previously, only basic handling was provided on the main ramp, with crew/pax having to walk/drive across to the public terminal. Operating tip: if you are going to NZQN/Queenstown - which can have weather issues - use NZCH as alternate instead of NZDN/Dunedin or NZNV/Invercargill - CIQ much easier to arrange in Christchurch at short notice for a diversion.
