Travel Alert As Three flights Are Diverted In Spain
FLIGHTS have been diverted to Malaga and Jerez airports due to heavy fog in Granada and Seville.
An intense blanket of fog covered much of Spain’s Andalusia this morning resulting in the detour of three flights.
Aena (Spanish Airports and Air Navigation sources) have informed that a flight from Alicante to Seville has had to be diverted to Jerez, and another flight from Malta that was supposed to land in the capital of Seville has been diverted to Malaga.
As Euro Weekly News understands, as a consequence of the detours, the scheduled return flights, from Seville back to Alicante and Malta will be made from the airports to which the flights have been diverted.
Latest reports inform that the foggy conditions have improved and operations are beginning to normalise at the airport in Seville.
The third plane to be diverted was one which departed from Barcelona due to land in the Federico García Lorca Granada-Jaén Airport but was re-routed to Malaga. The return trip of that plane will be made later from Granada back to Barcelona.
