Easter Mayhem Expected at UK Airports

Aviation made it into the news this week for all the wrong reasons. Airlines warn that Britain’s airports could be reduced to ‘gridlock’ over Easter due to security staff shortages.

Airlines have warned that the UK Border Agency does not have enough staff to check the passports of everyone coming into Britain, and long queues could leave passengers stranded on planes.

1.5 million holidaymakers are expected to travel this weekend but if the security halls are blocked passenger will need to remain on the aircraft resulting in security risks and serious operational delays for airlines.
