Associated Press Published 9:49 AM EDT Sep 22, 2019 Dubai, United Arab Emirates – Dubai International Airport, the world’s busiest airport for international travel, says “suspected drone activity” caused it to divert two flights. The airport says the incident affected flights from 12:36 p.m. to 12:51 p.m. Sunday. Alleged drone sightings have previously disrupted flights into the airport, which is the base of the long-haul carrier Emirates. Emirates said the flights were theirs, with one going to Sharjah and the other landing at Dubai’s second airport.
