SÃO PAULO, BRAZIL- An unidentified drone circling above São Paulo’s domestic airport, Congonhas, led authorities to close the airport for more than two hours on Sunday night, leaving hundreds of passengers stranded.
Many airlines cancelled their flights out of the city and directed flights coming into Congonhas to Guarulhos International, Campinas’ Viracopos and other airports as far away as Ribeirão Preto (280 km), Belo Horizonte (583 km) and Rio de Janeiro (433 km).
Two of Brazil’s largest airline companies, Gol and LATAM had 15 and 28 of their flights . . .
