Ryanair flights to operate from London Stansted instead of Gatwick tomorrow
Gatwick: Passengers should not come to the airport on Friday
Gatwick closed until at least 6am on Friday
Gatwick: “We anticipate disruption will continue tomorrow”
At Athens International Airport, EasyJet passengers are furious that they were not informed earlier of flight cancellations in contrast to those flying domestically in the UK.
Passengers on the 1:10 PM flight to Gatwick learned more than seven hours after check-ins closed that the flight had been indefinitely suspended after being told initially it had only been delayed by an hour.
One traveller said:
By the time my daughter woke up she had been informed her flight from Edinburgh to Gatwick today had been cancelled while here we were told to get to the airport and endure the wait.”
Passengers were offered a 4.60 euro refreshment coupon as they endured what airport operators were calling “an open delay.”
An EasyJet manager has predicted that Gatwick was likely to be in chaos for several days given the backlog of flights throughout Europe.
What we have seen has made us ask what if the same thing happened in Athens,” he said expressing fears of a coordinated drone disruption across Europe.
