Airport problems.

Poor weather affects arrivals

Airport problems. 1As correctly predicted in the previous post, airport problems have been experienced again this afternoon, with a number of Thursday’s usual German flights having to divert to alternative locations, whilst generally poor conditions prevail at Sta. Cruz. Nothing too serious, and hopefully they will complete their journeys later. For the first time for a while Porto Santo has been used for the diversions when Madeira experiences airport problems.
Corresponding with this the weather warning on the south coast has been moved up a notch as the wind strengthens.

17.00:  Two flights TAP flights have been cancelled from Lisbon, including one that turned round and went back. A total of five Condor flights have now been diverted, the majority to Porto Santo and the rest went to the Canary Islands.
