“In Alicante airport car park,” one flier tweeted. “Terminal evacuated as smoke and flames on roof about Gates B, ( I saw them from inside airport).
“@Ryanair be good to know what’s happening. So far nothing on twitter and no email.
Very glad, I bought baguette, water and coffee.”
Another posted: “Emergency at Alicante Airport, terminal evacuated #alicanteairport Police and fire engines in attendance.”
The Costa Blanca airport is the fifth-busiest in Spain. In 2019, 15 million passengers passed through the airport.
