Helios Glasgow - Cyprus passengers delayed 21 hours
Angry holidaymakers faced a more than 21-hour delay yesterday, as they waited to fly on holiday from Glasgow Airport to Cyprus. Hundreds more Scots were left stranded on the Mediterranean island by the troubled Helios Airways after technical difficulties hit an incoming flight from Larnaca.
The majority of passengers due to travel to Cyprus - who should have left at 23:00 Sunday night - stayed overnight at the nearby Holiday Inn Glasgow Airport. They were due to depart at 19:20 last night.
Yesterday's marathon delays follow a similar incident involving Helios last October, in which a flight to Larnaca took off around 36 hours late.
