Emirates A380 operating EK 241 to Toronto just did a missed approach in Toronto due to wind shear and decided to divert to Ottawa. It commenced the diversion around 1630 local time.

Ottawa, now (and for the next 10 weeks) has only one runway for transport sized aircraft. I could see holding now if a bunch of diversions are headed there!

Listening to Ottawa ATC on Liveatc.net, EK241 recently declared a Mayday, probably due to low fuel, and emergency vehicles were dispatched. However, they just cancelled the Mayday. I think they said they had 530 passengers and crew.

now what do they do. is there a crew on board with enough flyable time to refuel and get going to YYZ again?



When in doubt, hold on to your altitude. No-one has ever collided with the sky.

Geez....not enough fuel for even a single go-around? Granted I don't know if they were circling for a long time but it seems odd that they only made one approach before diverting.

Just took off from YOW Runway 14, about 2.5 hours after landing. Will mean about a 5 hour delay into YYZ, but weather is still a problem there.

Yes they did a lot of circling along with LH but LH landed while EK was on it's way to CYOW.

Quoting Viscount724 (Reply 11):
They just advised YOW Ground that they will be ready to start engines in 5 to 10 minutes to return to YYZ, and the controller said YYZ has advised that they will be given priority for landing due to the diversion. Apparently still a lot of delays to YYZ due to weather. If they do leave YOW in the next 15 or 20 minutes they will have spent about 2.5 hours there, and arrival YYZ will be around 5 hours late.

Just got home from the airport and no show for EK

Return flight to YYZ came on the Toronto East Radar frequency and was told to hold again at Imeba fix near Lake Simcoe. But the hold was cancelled after one orbit and now being given radar vectors. Also advised that windshear is still being reported at YYZ.

EK 241 just landed on R/W 15R. Long long day for the crew and the pax. Luckily this is the long layover for the crew; 3 nights instead of the 2 nights on MON/WED flights.

YOW is the official alternate airport for EK's A380 flight to YYZ, ahead of YUL.

Quoting longhauler (Reply 6):
I can't imagine an A380 doing a non-precision approach into an unfamiliar airport.

Dont know if they flew the VOR-DME 14 approach, but runway 14 is now equipped with a RNAV Approach with an LPV minimum (DH of 253 ft AGL). Thus making it a precision approach capable runway for aircraft that are able to fly the LPV.

No RNAV or RNP approach is a precision aproach especially for alternate minimums. That being said since YOW is likely a diversion airport they probably had all of the RNP and RNAV approaches in their database.

Did anyone else divert?
