Flight disruption continued for a second day in a row at Northern Ireland's two major airports as a result of a fuel supply problem in Manchester.

A total of three Flybe flights were cancelled to and from George Best Belfast City Airport on Sunday with passengers on four other flights experiencing delays.

There were further problems yesterday when another flight to Manchester was cancelled as a result of power issues which led to a failure of fuel supply systems.

A total of six flights were cancelled to and from Belfast International Airport on Sunday.

Knock-on delays continued yesterday but last night a spokesperson for the airport said all issues now appear to have been resolved.

"Engineers have now resolved the power issue which affected the fuel supply," Manchester Airport said yesterday.

A total of around 13,000 passengers were affected and at least 80 more flights were cancelled.
