Passengers travelling through Guernsey Airport over the next few days are being urged to leave more time before their flights, because the baggage X-ray machines might be out of order for a while.
The Airport's Twitter account notified people that they had to order parts for their machines before they could get them back online.
Travelling with hold baggage on flights today? Please allow extra time to check in items, this is due to an issue with one of our x-ray machines. We apologise for any inconvience caused.— Guernsey Airport ✈ (@GuernseyAirport) 16 July 2019
It was announced yesterday that the machines were broken, meaning everyone has to put their hold luggage through the oversized baggage scanner - a much slower process.
Our checked-in (hold) baggage x-ray needs parts which are on order. Please bear with us as checked-in baggage will need to be processed through our out-of-gauge machine for a few more days.— Guernsey Airport ✈ (@GuernseyAirport) 16 July 2019
A spokesperson for the Airport said it could now be a few more days before things were back to normal. That is because the needed parts are 'on order'.
So, until then, passengers might find themselves having to queue to get their luggage checked in, before having to queue to go through the new security set up.
