Namibia: Hosea Kutako International Airport safety notice

Hosea Kutako International Airport (HKIA) had to issue a Notice to Airmen (NOTAM) earlier on 26 October due to a safety hazard as there was a disabled aircraft at Threshold 26. At least one flight was unable to land and had to return to Johannesburg. The NOTAM was issued at 14:40 and was lifted at 15:20 and the airport is fully operational again. A NOTAM is a notice filed with an aviation authority to alert aircraft pilots of potential hazards along a flight route or at a location that could affect the safety of the flight. It could not be confirmed how many planes were unable to land.
