Turrialba Volcano’s constant eruptions cause delays and cancellations of flights. A passenger, who asked not to be identified, talked about the situation at Miami International Airport, located in Florida.
She had planned to return to Costa Rica on November 9th, but it has taken more time than expected.
The flight was scheduled for November 9th at 12 noon but it had to be rescheduled for November 10th at 8 in the morning. We boarded late because we did not know if we could fly and we left at 9 in the morning. But when we had been flying for an hour and 20 minutes, we returned to Miami due to the volcano’s eruptions,
declared the passenger.
The costa Rican citizen assures that there are about 350 people in the same situation at Miami Airport and the circumstances are very unlikely to change.
Aeris confirmed that from Wednesday to Thursday, at least 29 flights were suspended due to ashfall. The decision to cancel them was made by the airlines, as Juan Santamaría Airport is operating as regular.
