Unauthorised drones disrupt flight operations at Singapore airport

Unauthorised drone flying has prompted disruptions at Singapore’s Changi Airport for the second time in a week, the BBC reports.

The country’s Civil Aviation Authority (CAAS) said 18 flights had been delayed, and seven diverted due to drones and bad weather.

Last week, one runway was suspended at Changi and dozens of flights delayed after drone sightings.
