Passengers stranded for 24 hours after holiday jet hit by lightening


More than 200 holidaymakers arrived at Glasgow Airport yesterday, after a 24-hour delay in Spain. Thomas Cook cancelled their flight after the aircraft was struck by lightning in a thunderstorm during its outward journey.

The aircraft was enroute to Reus, Spain, on Tuesday night when the lightning struck. Passengers waiting for the plane at Reus Airport were unable to board the flight as it was diverted to Barcelona.

The stranded passengers are reported to have waited 10 hours before the two hundred and sixteen of them were moved to an airport hotel. They eventually returned to Glasgow Airport at 02:35 yesterday, more than 24 hours late.

A Thomas Cook spokesman said: 'The outward aircraft was unable to land. The captain reported it had been struck by lightning and had to divert to Barcelona.' The company were unable to get passengers to an airport hotel due to the flooding and fallen trees on the road in the area, he added.
