*NiMET warns of hazy weather days ahead

No fewer than 4,600 flights were affected by COVID-19 and bad weather in the last week globally.

The disruption was caused by harmattan haze and snow, coupled with pandemic restrictions in some countries and Covid-19 illness among airline crew.

Meanwhile, the Nigerian Meteorological Agency (NiMET) has warned of poor visibility in parts of the country early January.

The agency’s Central Forecast Office stated that dust raised over Faya Largeau in the Chad Republic is expected to disperse towards Nigeria, reducing visibility ranges in the Northern parts of the country. The dusty heavy wind will affect local flights and most likely worsen flight delays and cancellations.
