THE arctic weather front which dumped the heaviest snow fall for 25 years on Majorca this week started to lift yesterday, but air passengers booked to fly into Madrid were left stranded in Palma because an unexpectedly heavy fall of snow brought the Spanish capital to a complete standstill, forcing the authorities to close Barajas airport.

Scores of flights were cancelled or disrupted, including at least 42 to Palma throughout the day.
However, while there were problems at the airport, traffic on Majorca's mountain roads began to return to normal with only two stretches of the Ma-10 road between Andratx and Pollensa remaining closed yesterday morning.
