Canceled 17 flights today in Málaga due to the volcanic ash cloud
A total of 17 flights scheduled for this Wednesday at the Malaga airport have been canceled due to the ash cloud, as reported from Spanish Airports and Air Navigation (Aena). Although this figure may vary throughout the day, these data are encouraging, since on Tuesday were suspended a total of 144 flights.
In this sense, Aena has explained that this improvement is because there is no European country to remain completely closed its airspace and that there are special supportive charter flights to carry passengers.
Still, the connections with the United Kingdom remain the most affected. Specifically, of the 17 canceled flights, ten are from the United Kingdom, which is the largest issuer of flights to Malaga.
The latest data provided by Aena indicate that there are suspended two flights to Ireland, Belgium, Germany and one to France.
