The wind at Madeira Airport is continuing to divert flights with 6 diverting to the Canary Islands. A disastrous day for passengers trying to get to and from the island.
I really think the best solution is to make Porto Santo Airport bigger, more space to hold planes and more facilities there for passengers, this way flights would not need to divert to the mainland or the Canaries wasting fuel. A high speed boat option would also be a good idea if sea conditions allow for this.
There are passengers still here from last Monday that probably won’t get hone today and may well be stranded fir at least another week. Anyone in this situation please let us know.
I also think the flight companies should be made to put on extra planes to get people to their destinations, as they also hold a responsibility for this.
