View Full Version : GRU now open after flooding

11th Mar 2016, 10:16
Guarulhos airport in São Paulo has reopened following a six hour closure.

Due to heavy rains in the region an electrical substation flooded and the runway lighting was turned off as a precaution, shortly after midnight local time. Obviously without runway lighting the airport had to be closed and flights diverted to other airports or in some cases cancelled.
