At 11am today, Seletar Airport was closed to all departing and arriving flights as a result of prolonged poor visibility caused by the haze. The current closure is for twelve hours, up to 11pm, and may be extended subject to visibility conditions.

2. Today’s visibility, fluctuating between 700m and 1,200m, is below Seletar Airport’s minimum operating requirement of 1,500m. The airport, which operates under visual meteorological conditions, is therefore not able to accept aircraft arrivals and departures as pilots would not have a clear view of the runway.

3. During this closure, two arrivals were diverted to other airports, and eight departures were cancelled.
4. The Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore and Changi Airport Group are closely monitoring the visibility conditions before reopening Seletar

Airport for flight operations.

AseanAffairs   04 January 2011
By David Swartzentruber      

It is commonplace in journalism to write two types of articles at the transition point between the year that has passed and the New Year. As this writer qualifies as an “old hand” in observing Thailand with a track record dating back 14 years, it is time take a shot at what may unfold in Thailand in 2011.
