Despite the several attempts and the waiting time that several planes made this morning in the hope of landing in Madeira, eight ended up being diverged.
The first flight to fail to land was the one from Lisbon, which should have landed on Madeira at 9:15 am.
At the very least, the flights of Jet2 (Newscastle), Edelweiss Air (Zurich), two of Tuifly (with connections to Dusseldorf and Stuttgart), easyjet (London), Corendon Airlines (Dusseldorf) and Eurowings (Dusseldorf) followed. .
A plane from Lufthansa (Munich), Eurowings (Hamburg), Jet2 (Bristol) and TUI (Munich) is still hovering in the air.
It is recalled that since the weekend, adverse weather conditions, especially strong winds, have hampered airport operations in the Region.
