Work on the new runway at Birmingham International Airport begins today. Bosses say the extended runway will unlock the Far East and the rest of the world for the airport as it means long haul flights can go direct to and from there.
We can confirm that an incident involving Monarch flight ZB467 arriving from Nice and operated by AURELA Airlines occurred at 13.11 this afternoon. At the present time, airfield services are assisting the airline crew. Flights are currently suspended. More information will be provided as soon as it becomes available.
