Seven flights, the majority of foreign tourists, could not land at the César Manrique Airport yesterday due to adverse phenomena, in this case gusts of winds of more than 70 kilometers per hour.


The affected planes were forced to land, three of them in Tenerife Sur and another four in Fuerteventura. Despite the setback, the companies were able to relocate the tourists to hotel facilities on those two islands.


The Lanzarote Tourist Federation ensures that despite the setbacks, quick solutions were sought to avoid harming customers as little as possible.


The tourism sector reminds the island authorities of the precariousness of the César Manrique airstrip. So much so that when there are adverse conditions, no matter how small, the companies, for safety reasons, choose to land at other airports in the Archipelago.
