Flight delays
« on: February 25, 2018, 20:42:56 pm »
See from a flight tracker that flights to the canaries are being disrupted due to high winds and rain. Because of limited diversion capacity in the Canary Islands, many flights are diverting to Faro in Portugal or Marrakesh in Morocco.
From three hours ago: Ryanair flight FR4755 from Bristol to Lanzarote diverted to Fuerteventura about 4h ago. After refueling the aircraft made a new attempt to reach Lanzarote without success and diverted to Fuerteventura once again. Not sure how many flights come i to the island from UK on a Sunday, but this presumably will have a knock on effect tomorrow.

This afternoons flight from LBA to Fue  had to land in Faro. Apparently there was a twister just above the Canaries.
