Airlines are having trouble finding hotels to accommodate passengers whose flights have been canceled at Canary airports due to the calima.
A spokeswoman for Vueling has informed Efe that the main problems are on the island of Gran Canaria, where her airport has been inoperative for several hours due to the dense calm.
In addition there is the circumstance that during the carnival weekend the hotels are at their maximum capacity.
In the case of Vueling, the company is giving passengers the option to pay for lodging if they find a hotel, since, according to the spokeswoman, the airline does not find free seats.
The spokeswoman has said that the situation has been complicated during the day today since the passengers of the flights canceled yesterday are added those of this day.
