87 Flights Cancelled From Manchester Airport

In the early hours of Sunday morning, hundreds of travellers were left stranded at Manchester airport overnight following 87 flight cancellations. Many holiday-makers are still stuck at the airport, awaiting alternative travel after a ‘power issue’ that prohibited many aircrafts from being re-fuelled.

Engineers at Manchester Airport have now resolved the ‘power issue’ allowing the majority of scheduled flights to run as normal. Unfortunately there are still a few delays and cancellations as a result of the issues faced the day prior. Officials from Manchester Airport claim that the current foggy weather conditions are also having a direct effect on the scheduled flights and that the fuelling problem is not to blame entirely.

It has been reported that many customers have been transferred to Liverpool Airport in an attempt to rehouse them onto alternate flights but this resolution has not prevented a multitude of inconveniences and delays for those intending to fly the day before.

A spokesman from Manchester Airport report that it is ‘business as usual’ this Monday morning and that most flights are likely to run as scheduled. However, passengers have been advised to check the status of their flights with the airlines or travel insurers in case of disruption. If you are renting a car with Green Motion and are unable to pick up your vehicle at the specified collection time due to these delays, then please contact our reservations department and an agent will advise you on the best course of action.
