Airlines issue airspace warning for Brazil

Dec. 12, 2006 at 7:36 PM   |   Comments

SAO PAULO, Dec. 12 (UPI) -- Two foreign airlines are warning their pilots about the dangers of flying in Brazilian airspace following the deadliest accident on record in the country.

The airlines, both European and unnamed in a story in leading Brazilian newspaper Folha de Sao Paulo, are instructing their pilots to fly defensively in Brazilian airspace and remain on the outside of flying lanes until it is absolutely necessary to enter a landing pattern.

The warning followed the September mid-air sideswipe of two planes in Brazilian airspace that killed more than 150 people aboard a commercial airliner that crashed.
