A total of 12 flights were cancelled yesterday at the airport, the late afternoon evening seemed to be a bit better with most flights landing.
Having just had a trip to the airport this morning, the cloud and rain has gone, but the wind is very strong and gusty, and as it stands nothing has yet landed this morning, with 3 flights in holding positions about 40 mins ago.
Only one flight has cancelled its trip today so far, that being Transavia France.
Just a quick update at 10.45 am. No planes have landed at Madeira’s airport this morning, some have diverted to canaries and those from mainland have returned. Easyjet and British Airways are on the way but it’s not looking good.
The wind is expected to continue tomorrow.
