Manchester Airport runs out of fuel!!

Good luck if you are returning to Manchester on an early flight tomorrow. From 6pm tonight many flights will be cancelled due to the fact that they have no fuel. Can expect to see many delays caused by this. How on earth this can be allowed to happen, it's beyond me!

Hopefully the refinery will be pumping fuel to the airport again by midnight, lets hope for minimal delays.

The problem is with the underground supply pipeline from the refinery to the airport and fuel is now flowing again, nothing to do with the way the airport is run.

Seems like no cancellations will be needed, but may be just a few delays whilst the fuel gets back up to normal stock level!

Think you might need a 20ltr jerry can, they use 3,000,000 litres a day

local new update says problem with quality of fuel which is pumped through pipeline from Ellesmere Port its all now resolved and fuel running again all tanks at airport will be topped up to full again during the night they do not envisage any cancellations at all and maybe a couple of minor delays this evening and fully up and running for all flights tommorow so no nee to panic anyone! nothing at all to do with airport management or their operation systems

On a more serious note, its a good job the airport is regularly checking the quality of its fuel that's pumped to it,

A flame-out at 36,000ft could be the outcome had it not been so good at checking it regularly so Manchester Airport Group deserve some credit
