Flights diverted from Lisbon following runway blockage

by TPN/ Lusa, in News · 18-05-2017 11:22:00 · 0 Comments



Five flights that were to have landed at Lisbon airport yesterday afternoon were diverted to Faro or Porto after access to Lisbon’s runway was temporarily blocked.

Flights diverted from Lisbon following runway blockage

 

This was caused by an operation to tow a TAP aircraft that had discovered an oil leak after landing and needed to shut it engines down.

 

The runway also had to be cleaned following the leak, which prolonged the delay.

 

As a result five flights were unable to land between 2pm and 2.20pm, with four of them being diverted to Faro and another to Porto.
