Flights are certainly being affected by the bad weather that is currently hitting the island. Some flights have already returned to their destination of departure, others have diverted to Porto Santo.
A couple of flights did manage to land, but now BA from Gatwick appears to be heading to Lisbon, I really hope not back to the UK, as I have friends on the flight.
It looks as though the BA flight is coming back towards Porto Santo.
Madeira remains on yellow alert for strong winds and rain till midnight tonight.
