The airport said in an earlier post on social media platform X that passengers due to fly from Terminal 3 should go to the airport as normal, unless advised otherwise by their airline, but they could be affected by delays.

The disruption was first reported by Sky News, which said an issue with the power supply had affected the airport and a number of other buildings. Power has been restored but services will be affected throughout the day, the report added.
