A defective aircraft causes problems at the airport Berlin-Schoenefeld. Because it's in the middle of the runway, no machines can land there at the moment.
Due to a defective aircraft on the runway, the airport Berlin-Schönefeld is currently closed. "Currently the clearance is set in Schönefeld," said the airport on his Twitter account. Whether passengers were in the plane, initially remained unclear. The clearance was set shortly after 9.30 clock, said an airport spokesman. There was no further information about the defective aircraft at first.
Currently, all aircraft that are approaching the capital's airport are diverted. "Please inquire with your airline about the flight status", it continues from the airport.
Initially, this involved four Ryanair flights from Madrid, Edinburgh, Brussels and Seville, plus two EasyJet aircraft and two more from El Al and Rossiya.
The closure of the airport comes at an inopportune: Because of the Easter holiday traffic, it is noticeably fuller than usual since the beginning of the holiday at the Berlin airports, because of long waiting passengers have already missed their machines.
