The airport halted all arrivals around 1 pm after smoke sensors in the control tower alerted staff to a possible fire.
Kraków Airport halted all arrivals on Saturday after a fire alert in the terminal’s control tower earlier that day, an airport spokesperson has informed.
Natalia Vince told PAP that the control tower’s fire alarm went on shortly before 1 am. She said fire teams found no fire in the building, and that the probable reason for the alarm was a short circuit.
Vince said planes scheduled to land in Kraków were being detoured to Katowice as the control tower building was still under inspection by firemen.
