Air Nostrum passengers grounded in Paris for 30 hours
07 August 2018 @ 00:25

PASSENGERS spent over 30 hours waiting at Charles de Gaulle airport in Paris to fly home to Vigo (Pontevedra province, Galicia) after their Air Nostrum flight broke down on Sunday afternoon.

The 87 travellers were due to take off on flight IB-8423 at 14.00, but were still waiting in the French capital at 20.00 this evening (Monday).

The regional branch of Iberia said it had had 'problems' getting passengers on other flights because it is high tourism season and claims it offered 'various options', including connections via Madrid-Barajas and even the London airports.

In the end, Air Nostrum had to seek permission to charter a completely new flight – a 'special rescue operation', the company said – with 100 spaces, direct to Vigo's El Peinador airport from Paris.

It was expected to take off this evening, but it has not been confirmed whether the waiting travellers made it home.
