Passengers to get ferry after problems at the airport today due to the strong winds in that area.
JM reports at least 300 people will later get the Ferry Lobo Morinho from Porto Santo after 4 flights were diverted there today. The ferry will leave at 7pm bringing the passengers to Funchal.
At least four flights have been cancelled, all easy jet, two from Lisbon, and the others from Manchester and Edinburgh.
At least 3 flights are circulating at the moment trying to land.
The airport is very busy, with about 8000 passengers on the other side of security.
The flight from Barcelona has been going round in circles for over an hour now, I am sure it will soon be giving up……
