Last Update: July 16, 2017 / 20:54:41 GMT/Zulu time
An Air Seychelles Airbus A330-200, registration S7-VDM performing flight HM-54 from Mauritius (Mauritius) to Mahe Island (Seychelles), had been cleared to climb to FL370 and was climbing through FL330 when the Emirates descended through FL380.
Both crews were visual with each other, received TCAS resolution advisories, in addition HM-54 turned right. Position data off transponders of both aircraft suggest that the horizontal separation between the aircraft was about 7.5nm when both aircraft passed through FL360 at 0 feet vertical separation and was about 4nm when the vertical separation between the aircraft reached 1000 feet again with EK-703 below FL360 and HM-54 levelling off at FL370.
