Aviation Meteorology (MET) provides information on the direct impact of weather on aircrafts, flight plans, airports, ground handling, air traffic control and management. The MET office keeps everyone informed about weather conditions that could disrupt the air traffic, such as pressure changes, temperature variations, reduced visibility, flow rates, hazardous weather
and more to ensure that passengers, crew and employees are safe. The MET office works alongside the Volcanic Ash Advisory Centre (VAAC) for forecasts on volcanic eruptions emitting ash coverage, which could lead to a change in aircraft navigation and flight path. The Aviation Meteorology Office (AMO) provides airlines worldwide with the latest weather information from the Aeronautical Fixed Telecommunications Network (AFTN) for complete efficiency and to maintain safety.
