Sharjah: Six Air Arabia flights bound for Sharjah were diverted to Ras Al Khaimah due to suspected drone activity on Thursday morning.

One passenger tweeted, “Pilot said #Sharjah airport airspace has just reopened after drone activity. He said 8 flights were diverted to Ras al-Khaimah-don’t know about other Emirates.”
