Had more than an hour delay for push-back this morning.
Anybody have an idea what reason was?

Seems maybe a drone or unidentified aircraft into the CTR just N of 03L. Landings were on 03R for awhile and departures 21R,

Back to 21 ops now.

45 min delay on the departure out of ORT

Or get ATNS take out their wallet and contact me and I will provide them with the correct procedures to perform an appropriate Threat Risk Assessment to enable the minimum impact to operations. Used to be a big problem in Dubai now no more.
