The airport posted a statement on Twitter, saying: “Due to an ongoing issue with Vodafone – an IT provider for the airport – our flight information screens are not displaying correctly. Please use the temporary flight boards in the departure lounges or listen for airline flight announcements.”

Over 80,000 passengers are predicted to be travelling through the two terminals at the airport today causing mass disruption for outgoing flights.
