There was mild rush yesterday as people people flew marking the end of the holiday period.

The situation was not helped by the airport only having every second check in desk open to maintain distance between staff members.

The airport confirmed the queues – and said it was down to lower staff numbers. A spokesman pointed out yesterday was not particularly busy for a Sunday.
