Hundreds of Britons LOCKED IN scorching Italian airport corridor for an HOUR without water

Posted on

Hundreds of British passengers yesterday were locked up for an hour in a sweltering airport corridor in Italy with no access to water or toilets.

Travelers waiting to board an easyJet flight to Manchester tried to get out of a stuffy, unventilated room through an emergency exit before finding that their flight had been cancelled.

Several passengers allegedly fainted with temperatures soaring past 86F outside, with mothers stripping babies into their diapers to stop them overheating.

After several delays on their flight, the customer was finally released only to be told that their flight had been cancelled.

Passengers ended up waiting at the airport for about eight hours and claimed they had to fend for themselves to book hotels and taxis.

The long day took its toll on RAF veteran Joe Rylance, 83, of Bangor, North Wales, who struggled to sit on the hard airport floor.

His son, Neil Rylance, 52, CEO and founder of a software company, said his group of eight would now be stuck in Pisa for an additional two days.

He estimated that the disruption caused by the experience and cancellation would cost the family more than £2,000.

Speaking today from Pisa, Neil said: ‘It was chaos. There were three easyJet flights all done together with no one controlling where we were going.

‘Everyone who was supposed to be on the Manchester flight was locked in this corridor – locked at both ends.

‘In 10 minutes it was getting hotter and hotter and hotter.

“There are babies who are stripped naked because they are really sweaty and there is no air.

‘We tried to kick out the fire just to get some air for people.

‘No representative from easyJet in sight throughout this experience.

‘My dad just wants to go home. This has taken a lot from him, which is really annoying.

‘My daughter is a care worker, my partner is a police officer and we were meant to be here relaxing after years of not vacationing. Now we are all very stressed.’

Neil added: ‘Communication is very important, but completely absent.

“I just hope they talk to us, tell us what’s going on. We still don’t know what’s going on.’

A video taken by Neil shows passengers trying to get out of the emergency exit.

Other passengers took to social media yesterday while stuck at the airport to vent their frustration at the airline.

Natalie Yates said: ‘We’ve been delayed and are now being driven into hostel tunnels with no food, water or toilets and people passing out and overheating.

‘There is no communication, and there is no way out. Send help.’

Another traveler wrote: ‘HELP! Crazy crazy at gate 22 at #Pisa airport.

’11:30 flight to Manchester delayed; hot passengers; no water, no toilet; no security and open air side for all of us.’

Martin Brady said today: ‘Absolute show from @easyJet at Pisa airport yesterday.

‘Eight hours at the airport to be told it was cancelled, after being held in a tunnel with no access to food and drink. Madness!’

Airports across the UK have been hit by a series of delays, leaving thousands of passengers out of cash.

Travelers at Bristol Airport are said to have been in tears on Saturday after their TUI flight to Paphos, Greece was delayed by more than 20 hours.
