Heavy fog caused eight flights bound for Seville to be diverted to other regional airports today, Saturday, January 7
The thick fog with which Seville woke up to this morning forced the diversion of ten flights to San Pablo Airport. Eventually, after being diverted, eight planes landed in Malaga and two in Jerez de la Frontera (Cádiz).
Spanish airport operator Aena said that the fog had finally dissipated on the runways at San Pablo Seville, which allowed the airport to return to “normality” around 11:30 am.
It is not uncommon for airports to experience disruptions due to bad weather, such as fog, thunderstorms, or strong winds. These types of conditions can affect visibility, make it difficult for planes to take off or land safely, and lead to flight delays or diversions.
Seville is the capital and largest city of the autonomous community of Andalucia in southern Spain. It is located on the plain of the River Guadalquivir and is the fourth-largest city in the country.
Seville has a rich history and cultural heritage, with many landmarks and attractions that reflect its diverse influences. It was founded by the Romans in the 2nd century BC and later became an important center of trade and commerce during the Moorish rule. Today, Seville is known for its lively atmosphere, beautiful architecture, and delicious food.
Some of the city’s most popular landmarks include the Seville Cathedral, the Alcázar palace, and the Plaza de España. Seville is also home to a number of cultural festivals and events, including the Feria de Abril, a week-long fair held every April, and the Semana Santa, a Holy Week celebration featuring processions and religious ceremonies.
