Four diverted flights and one cancellation at Andalusian airports. This is the result of a morning where fog has been the real protagonist in places such as Seville where, on the other hand, this meteorological phenomenon has generated kilometer-long delays on the access roads to the capital.
It has been the San Pablo airport, in the Andalusian capital, that has been most affected and where up to three planes have had to be diverted to Malaga. The cancellation took place in Almería, where a plane was scheduled to land and subsequently take off to cover the journey to Madrid. The flight from Madrid-Almería to the Costa del Sol was diverted, the return trip has finally been cancelled.
It was early this morning when Aena sources announced four diverted flights and as many cancellations at two Andalusian airports.
In Seville, the San Pablo airport was going to be the most affected since, without landing the planes from Bilbao, Barcelona and Palma de Mallorca, which were diverted to Malaga, the return trips could not be made either, thus canceling three flights. Finally, the company announced that the planes had been able to reach the city of Seville, so the planned schedule was resumed, although with delays.
An airplane that covered the Madrid-Almería route also arrived to Malaga, which was covered in a thick white blanket that prevented its proper functioning. It has been at the Almeria airport where the only cancellation of any service has been recorded.
The Seville airport was operational again around 10:20 a.m., while the Almería airport is scheduled to arrive next around 1:00 p.m. and the fog is already disappearing, which suggests that it will arrive without a problem.
