ATSB Criticises EK For Clearance Violations

Tue Jul 04, 2006 10:12 pm

Quoting Flght International Story:
A spate of incidents in which Emirates aircraft failed to comply with Australian air traffic control has caught the attention of the Australian Transport Safety Bureau (ATSB). “An examination of the ATSB database found 20 incidents of non-compliance with air traffic control instructions or procedures by the operator over the six-month period to December 2005,” the ATSB says, adding that three of these were reported on the same day.

It's a bit of a worry that these happened, and even more worrying that Airservices Australia didn't make Emirates management aware of these incidents...
