(MENAFN- Trend News Agency)
Sixty-five flights were canceled on Saturday at Lisbon airport,
causing long queues and thousands of passengers without
accommodation and alternative solutions, Trend reports citing Xinhua .
According to the airline TAP, the cancellations were caused by
the bursting of the tires of a private jet, which forced the
closure of the airport's runway.
In turn, the air controller ANA (Aeroportos de Portugal),
claimed that the situation was the result of a broader problem of
'constraints at several European airports.'
'Due to a set of constraints at several European airports, 65
canceled flights are planned for today - 40 arrivals and 25
departures,' ANA said in a statement sent to the press.
According to the company, Lisbon airport 'implemented measures
to support airlines, namely the installation of additional mobile
counters to reschedule flights.'
'We advise passengers with a scheduled flight to contact the
airlines,' said ANA.
