Which flights are cancelled from Manchester Airport today?

UK airports have been badly affected by staff shortages over the past weeks and months

Passengers using Manchester Airport have been hit with an array of cancellations and delays in recent weeks and months as the airport struggles to cope through a shortage of staff.

Today, French airport staff are on strike and this is leading to delays and cancellations to flights to and from Manchester Airport.

Neal McMahon, Ryanair operations director said:“It is inexcusable that passengers who are not even flying to or from France are disrupted.

“It is time that the European Union step in and protect overflights so that European passengers are not repeatedly held to ransom by a tiny French air traffic control union.”

EasyJet said: “While this is outside of our control, we would like to apologise to our customers for any inconvenience they may experience.”

This has led to thousands of people being delayed at the airport, with some of them taking to social media to voice frustrations.

Here’s the latest on flight cancellations, including which flights have been cancelled today and what the airport has said about the disruption.

Security wait time: 17 minutes
