On Sunday, Chopin Airport opened an hour later than normal. Due to this, several flights were diverted to other cities and there were also delays. Why?

We received a message describing morning difficulties at Chopin Airport at Kontakt 24. “This morning, i.e. May 19, between 6:10 a.m. and 6:50 a.m. Chopin Airport was closed. Planes from Tokyo, Bucharest, Krakow, Gdańsk, Vilnius and Paris were redirected to airport in Katowice or Kraków,” wrote a reader.

“There were fire brigade vehicles and tugboats at the intersection of the two runways,” he added.

We asked the port representatives about the matter. Anna Dermont, spokeswoman for Chopin Airport, confirmed that the airport opened today an hour later than normal.

– Due to previously planned technical works being carried out at the runway intersection, it was necessary to extend the airport closure for flight operations by one hour. 14 flights were diverted and 17 departures were delayed. At 0700, takeoffs and landings were safely resumed. At the moment, the airport is operating normally, she said.
