Passengers complain of airport fire chaos

A total of 2,000 people were evacuated from the terminal building

MORE than 160 flights were cancelled due to the fire at Alicante-Elche airport and hundreds more services were diverted to Murcia international and Valencia.
An emergency committee comprising the emergency services, local councils, and the provincial and regional governments was set up to manage the crisis, as more than 30,000 flyers were affected.
Although state airport authority Aena reported that the fire was ‘under control’ at 15.30 on Wednesday, the blaze continued to spread.
