An update on the situation that took place yesterday at the Madeira airport, which forced a TAP plane to ‘abort’ the landing, he other plane involved was in the air and not on the runway.

Contrary to news reports of the unexpected existence of an unmanned private plane on the runway, the truth is that the aircraft had already taken off.

However, according to JM, the private aircraft “was apparently not complying with an instruction provided to it by the air traffic control services, which could, in the limit, amount to a loss of the minimum separation between aircraft in regulated terms “.

The explanation is given to our newspaper by NAV Portugal, who states that the purpose of this instruction was “the guarantee of operational safety”.
