A power outage at the British airport on Sunday caused a delay in a flight from Manchester to the UAE, creating “chaos.” Emirates Airlines sent a message to passengers, informing them of the flight delay.

In the early hours of Sunday, Manchester Airport experienced a significant power cut.

Jasmine B, who was scheduled to fly on EK0022 from Manchester to Dubai on Sunday, spoke to the news.

“My flight was scheduled for 9.50 am from Manchester to Dubai. As I was leaving for the airport, I noticed that there was a 3-hour delay in my flight. However, I didn’t think much of it and assumed a technical error or shortage of planes,” she said.

“I got to the airport at 7 am and was not informed of my flight cancellation until 9.45 am, after standing outside the airport for over 2 hours,” Jasmine added.

“Nobody was being let in or let out and the updates during the waiting period were non-existent, we were kept being told to ‘just wait’. There were numerous mothers, with their young children, sitting on the side of the road. They had been there since the early hours of the morning. We were eventually informed about the mass power cut in the airport,” she said.
