Bit gutted really as i was thinking of going down to get the Vueling A321 but didn't bother. Easyjet at CWL is a rare event!

About half a dozen BRS inbounds circling at the moment. I presume it's because of the thunder storms in the area. We've had thunder and lightning for an hour now where I live about seven miles from the airport.

Two easyJets to BRS (from Palma and Edinburgh) reportedly diverted to CWL because of storms at BRS. A Ryanair from Dublin went to Luton and a Jet2 from Funchal to Birmingham.

I don't know why the Ryanair didn't go into CWL as the airline has handlers there.

Aircraft are landing again now at BRS.

Luton is a surprise I'd have thought they'd have gone to Birmingham.

3 x BRS diversions in already this morning (1 x EI and 2 x EZY)

Low cloud base causing issues over there, and could do so for most of the morning.

Four other diversions from BRS went to BHX (1 x easyJet and 3 x Ryanair). Aircraft began landing again at BRS from later this morning.

Could CWL have accepted all seven diversions in the sense that sufficient staffing levels would have been available during the current pandemic disruption? I know that Ryanair tends to divert to BHX from BRS whereas easyJet will normally use either CWL or BHX, and sometimes other airports.

If these misty mornings persist CWL might see further diversions from BRS.

Kingshat posted this in the BRS forum this week.

The Runway 27 ILS has been unavailable for about a month whilst a new one has been installed. Commissioning flight checks have taken place yesterday and today which, if successful, will be followed by more ground testing. The ILS is then required to be soak tested for a short period before returning to Cat 1 operations, hopefully on Saturday evening. Cat 3b landings will recommence after a further 300 hours of fault free running - the ILS will generally not be available on Runway 09 during this period, unless the weather dictates that it is required for landing. All being well the airport should return to normal ILS operations by 1st October.

This morning there was a brief period when aircraft did not land at BRS and two easyJets both on domestic flights diverted, one to Luton and the other to Liverpool. Quite why they didn't pop in to CWL I don't know. Both aircraft returned to BRS within an hour or so and CWL is obviously nearer.

Both are EZY bases obviously so maybe the crews were low on time so if they ran out then the aircraft were at Easyjet bases and not a non base?
Shame though as it would be a nice bit of extra revenue for Cardiff!
