Storm Gloria and recent fire shuts down Alicante Airport for 24 hours

Between 13:00 (UTC +1) 19 January and 13:00 20 January, Alicante Airport will be closed, this was announced by AENA, the airport authority responsible for the Spanish airport. Reason? A combination between storm Gloria, with winds of up to 120 km/hour and the recent fire that broke out at the airport.

Due to the effects that the storm Gloria could have on the areas affected by the fire last week, we are forced to close down the airport for 24 hours,” Aena wrote, adding that passengers should check with their airline for flight status and certainly shouldn’t come to the airport. 

Bart Noëth: Since 1996, I have been working in the Belgian airline industry, from a weekend job as a cabin aircraft cleaner to a flight attendant. After the demise of Sabena - in 2001, I created a website called, originally a meeting place for plane spotters and aviation freaks. Since 2017, the website changed into a professional news site. Next to aviation, I love to travel, wine and dine and enjoy my time off(-line) with my girlfriend, friends and family. My favourite football squad is KV Mechelen, I am an Ironman 70.3 finisher and my ambition is to complete a full Ironman.
