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.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.
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?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.
I wondered if that might be the reason but am not familiar with CWL handing staff procedures.I think the question to ask is did Cardiff have any movements around the same time? Maybe the Swissport staff are being rostered around flights so if there’s no flights then no staff to handle the diverts.
