The power failure occurred on Friday morning (10 June). A spokesperson for the airport confirmed that it had disrupted activity at the airport. The power failure affects the terminal, preventing check-in of passengers and baggage as well as border controls.
“It’s a rare technical problem that occurred during rush hour at the airport. Our teams are on site to try to solve the problem whose cause is unknown for the moment,” said the spokesperson early on Friday morning.
Since then, the problem has been detected and the systems have been restarted. A return to normal, however, takes time.
There were long queues in the morning at the security checks at the airport where the activity was paralyzed. All flights were also delayed.
