UK-bound planes can land in Spain

19 April 2010

Flights bound for Britain from outside Europe which are not able to land there due to the volcanic ash cloud will be allowed to land in Spain instead under a deal reached on Sunday between the two nations.

The deal will allow passengers bound for Britain from Asia, Latin America and North America to fly to Spain and from here reach their final destination either overland or by ferry, it said.

”Spain is offering the use of some Spanish airports as a intercontinental platform,”  Spanish Transport Minister Jose Blanco told a news conference, adding flights from other continents could land in Spain from where passengers could make their way to other destinations in Europe by road or rail.
