Holidaymakers are currently being advised to arrive at Manchester Airport three hours before their flight is scheduled to leave, and the airport has issued an apology for the disruption and stress it has caused those trying to enjoy their holidays.
A spokesperson for Manchester Airport said: “We are aware of some departing flights from Terminal Three having been delayed yesterday, and that some passengers had a lengthy wait at the gate as a result.
“The boarding process is the responsibility of the relevant airline, and we will work with the carrier concerned to understand how queues were managed in this instance and how this might be improved in future.
“We are also committed to providing adequate ventilation in our buildings and carry out regular assessments to ensure they comply with Health and Safety Executive guidelines.”
Many have lost faith in the airport, with passengers taking to Twitter to voice their grievances.
@FlyByOx stated: “I think that ManchesterAirp has the worst leadership in the world. The workers are nice but their leadership is abysmal.
