Air­port chaos as check-in IT sys­tem fails

Sunday Mirror (Northern Ireland) - - News - BY KAREN ROCKETT

HUN­DREDS of pas­sen­gers faced long de­lays yes­ter­day at Manch­ester Air­port air­port due to an IT fail­ure.

Huge queues formed as peo­ple were un­able to check in for their flights.

Air­port bosses said they were in­ves­ti­gat­ing and would pro­vide up­dates.

A spokesman said: “Our teams are work­ing hard to rec­tify the problem. We apol­o­gise to pas­sen­gers for any in­con­ve­nience caused.”

Among those caught up in the chaos was for­mer Eng­land foot­ball man­ager Sam Al­lardyce, 64, who was spot­ted look­ing frus­trated along with other pas­sen­gers.

One pas­sen­ger said at the air­port yes­ter­day: “It’s heav­ing and ev­ery­one is fum­ing. There have been no re­fresh­ments handed out and no in­for­ma­tion.”
