By : News Editor

Jordan Daily – The head of the Civil Aviation Regulatory Commission, Haitham Misto, said on Saturday that air traffic in Jordan has been affected due to interference with the GPS system, leading to the use of alternative systems by aircraft.

Misto clarified that navigation continues as usual after the use of alternative systems.

He stated that “the interference with the GPS navigation system affects wide areas of the eastern Mediterranean basin and includes areas in the Black Sea and Eastern Europe.”

He explained, “As for the impact on aircraft navigation, it affects devices that rely on GPS signals. However, there are other alternative systems for navigation in aircraft, as well as ground guidance devices used by aircraft; therefore, navigation continues as usual.”
