On Sunday alone, there were 87 flights cancelled. Some of which people complained they waited for hours, only to be told the flight was now cancelled. Other ended up having to sit on a grounded aircraft for 2 to 3 hours.

It is said to be all sorted now, and flights running as normal, but it is advised that customers check the status your flight.

Travelers took to social media to express their annoyance over the situation. Describing it as, "absolute carnage", "chaos" and a "total shambles".

How much has this power cut cost the airlines? As well as the airport, financially and with its reputation.
