Why Did BA490 To GIB Divert To MAD Today?

Tue Jul 26, 2011 7:27 pm

Hello,

Anyone know why it diverted? Also, given the political situation between Gib and Spain, MAD could be a strange airport to divert to. I guess it depends on the reason for the divert and how urgent it was (I'm assuming it must have been quite urgent otherwise they would have continued).

Thanks

The flight does sometimes have to divert due to weather at GIB (Its a really hard airport to land at in bad weather conditions)

Normally though it diverts to AGP as its only just down the road and PAX can be bussed between the 2 airports
