Sand storms continue to affect the Canary Islands
Thousands of passengers have been delayed due to the Calima
UK holidaymakers stranded in the Canary Islands are to begin returning home after most of the Spanish archipelago's airports reopened following a Saharan sandstorm.
Departures from Gran Canaria, Lanzarote, La Palma and Tenerife North were able to take off on Monday morning, but those departing from Tenerife South continued to be grounded.
Flights to and from the airports were cancelled, suspended or diverted over the weekend due to poor visibility.
Passengers posted photographs of people sitting on airport floors waiting for more information.Published: by Radio NewsHub
