Ryanair Flight Divertion


Hi there. A couple of days ago with a bad weather system over Northern Greece the Thessaloniki (SKG) airport was closed. There were 5 flights that were diverted to a near by city called Kavala (KVL). 2 Hours bus ride to SKG There was though a Ryanair flight (From London) that was diverted to Timisoara in Romania which is 8 -10 hours bus ride. Any idea why would Ryanair choose this airport instead of one closer?
