There is a general warning issued by the NCAA
The Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority has issued a circular
warning pilots about poor visibility brought about by harmattan
haze in some parts of the country.

The spokesperson for the NCAA, Mr. Sam Adurogboye, said
the circular, which also offered guidance on accident
prevention, was in line with the forecast earlier made by
Nigerian Meteorological Agency that indicated that there
would be moderate to severe outbreak of dust from November
2016 to March 2017, significantly reducing horizontal visibility.
He said, “With the issuance of this circular by the NCAA, the
Nigerian Meteorological Agency Advisory Circular AC: NCAA –
AEROMET 21 dated 1st of April, 2016 is accordingly
cancelled. It is pertinent to note that the effect of the
harmattan is comparable to that of heavy fog, which may
considerably reduce air to ground visibility.
