One video showed rainwater flooding one of the airport’s runways, with a member of staff jokingly diving into the water to show how deep it was. ‘Diverted to Mahon to wait, turns out we almost certainly won’t be heading onwards and will in fact [be] rediverting to…. Luton!

‘What an incredible [sic] fun day in the world of WizzAir UK.’

Delays and cancellations to departures and arrivals to Palma Airport, which saw 31million passengers pass through its doors in 2023, have been confirmed until at least 9pm tonight.

Some passenger planes were able to land before the suspension but passengers left trapped inside on the runway. A number of flights were diverted.

A spokesperson for Aena said around 8.30pm local time: ‘Of the more than 900 flights programmed for today, 100 have been affected by way of diversions or cancellations.
