Wind causes problems yet again
Problems have arisen this evening at the airport due to the recurrence of strong winds – once again!
Around 17:00 tonight a gust of wind of 85 km/h was registered at the airport, well above the prescribed tolerances, with the average wind blowing at more than 55 km/h.
At the start of the problems, two flights, one TAP and another Condor, chose to return to the cities from which they departed. TP 1695 was quickly back in Lisbon and the DE 1570 operated by Condor, who left Frankfurt, chose to return to the German city.
The same happened with the flight DE 1572 coming from Munich and the DE 1578 that left the German city Leipzig.
Departures are being restricted correspondingly, leaving hundreds of passengers in the airport.
