About 100 TUI fly Belgium passengers are waiting at Malaga airport since Tuesday afternoon.
The Boeing 737-800 (OO-JAQ) was scheduled to operate from Faro to Brussels via Jerez. Upon take-off at Faro airport the pilots encountered a small technical issue. After a few holding patterns the aircraft diverted to Malaga airport.
Unfortunately the spare part to fix the problem wasn’t available at Malaga airport, spokesman Piet Demeyere explained. The passengers spent the night in a hotel and a new flight is expected this Wednesday at 13:00
