200 Spaniards were trapped in Ecuador
The paranoia of the mayor of Guayaquil, Ecuador, as the Airbus A340-600 Iberia plane would bring people infected with the new COVID-19, has led to the blockade of the police cars and the municipal authorities. The mayor overcame the government decisions, which allowed the operation of return flights.
And even in the 12th hour, the mayor of Guayaquil was not convinced that the plane was empty, even though pictures appeared on board the aircraft. Moreover, he mentioned that he would block the track again if the situation required it.
Thus, the Airbus A340-600 Iberia (EC-KZI) had to take off as empty towards Madrid.
