As per reports, a total solar eclipse- ‘The Great North American Eclipse,’ is expected to pass through thirteen US states in a narrow path from southwest to northeast on Monday (08 April), and impact air traffic in the country.

• A notice by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) suggests that aircrafts should be prepared for possible airborne holding or rerouting.
• According to the notice, increased air traffic is also expected at airports along the eclipse path, potentially causing delays during peak traffic periods.
• Additionally, special security measures, including Temporary Flight Restrictions (TFRs), two-way radio communications, and discrete transponder requirements, are expected to be enforced during this event.
• Specifically, impacts on air traffic and airports along the eclipse’s path are anticipated from 1000 UTC on Sunday (07 April) through 0400 hours UTC on Wednesday (10 April). This timeframe encompasses the buildup to the eclipse, the eclipse event itself, and the subsequent normalization of air traffic operations.
• Additionally, between 1830 and 1940 UTC on Monday (08 April), disruptions to air traffic are expected as the total solar eclipse reaches its peak and the path of totality moves across the US.
• Airports, both public use and Department of Defense (DoD) situated within a 50 nautical mile (NM) radius on either side of the path of the total solar eclipse are likely to experience increased air traffic, operational challenges, and special procedures during the eclipse event. These include airports in Vermont, Ohio, Indiana, Texas, Arkansas, Pennsylvania, New York.
