Manchester Airport delays due to fuel problem

Manchester Airport delays

A power cut at Manchester airport led to chaos and stopped aircraft from being refuelled yesterday, leaving 13,000 passengers stranded.

Some inbound aircrafts have been diverted to other airports, including Liverpool, but other global flights overseas have been cancelled.

Other flights were hit by delays after the problems started on Sunday afternoon.

A spokesman for Manchester Airport confirmed there was a power outage earlier in the day that affected fuelling.

Most outbound planes were unable to take off because they did not have enough fuel to reach their destinations.

The refuelling problems were caused by a power surge and caused almost all aircraft to be grounded and many inbound flights to be diverted, website MT Aviation reported.

Thirty-seven of the cancelled flights were arrivals and 32 were departures.
