Bad weather is affecting flights at the airport at the moment.
About an hour ago we had really heavy rain with gusty winds in Caniço de Baixo, turning the roads to rivers. There is a weather alert out till 6pm tomorrow, for periods of rain and rough seas.
Tomorrow being one of the busiest days in the airport, could see some flights cancelled or diverted.
Today the airport has been very busy with 10 extra TAP flights going to mainland Portugal. Easyjet returned to lisbon about an hour ago, and another flight diverted to Porto Santo, which has now arrived safely in Madeira.
