As a precautionary measure, arrivals and departures flights were carefully regulated for short periods of time between 2007 hrs and 2107 hrs.

Investigations are ongoing. Members of the public are reminded that the authorities take a serious view of errant operations of unmanned aircraft which may pose threats to aviation or endanger the personal safety of others, and will not hesitate to take enforcement action against those who contravene regulations. Offenders could face a fine not exceeding $20,000 or imprisonment for a term of up to 12 months, or both.
