Maribor Airport damaged in hailstorm

NEWS FLASH


Maribor Edvard Rusjan Airport has been closed since last Friday after its terminal building was damaged in a hailstorm. The severe weather damaged the terminal’s roof structure. The Slovenian Minister for Infrastructure, Andrej Rajh, toured the site yesterday and said the Ministry would provide funds to cover repair costs. Limited operations are expected to resume today. Although it does not have scheduled flights, Maribor Airport handles pilot training operations and charters.

    Could this mean the end for them?

    Was this the same hailstorm that damaged an Austrian A320 that was landing in Vienna? I think that flight was last Friday too.

      No, not the same, but from the same weather system. This Friday many storm cells with large hail were built in this area. It is true, from the perspective of aviation both incidents were not apart too far.

    Hopefully the TUI deal doesn't fall through because of that

      I don’t think this will affect the deal. Although the repair costs are around 1 millions euros (they said it on radio this morning).

    The terminal looks really good on the first picture. Sad that there is no serious operations from it. Wizz or Ryanair would be nice
