Passengers en route to Thessaloniki were forced to wait 12 hours at Paphos International Airport, due to mechanical failures of not one but two planes that were supposed to transport them to their destination.
According to journalist Kiki Perikleous, passengers travelling to Thessaloniki had to board their flight twice on Sunday due to mechanical faults found on the planes.
The initial delay was caused due to an air conditioning malfunction on the aircraft, with passengers being told to get off the plane and wait for the next one.
But the second plane had a different kind of malfunction, with reports saying the door wouldn’t shut properly

The wait got longer with reports saying passengers were getting frustrated, including parents with young children who were getting anxious.
Around midnight, after passengers had to wait at Paphos International for almost 12 hours, they learned that another plane from Israel was coming to take them to their destination.
Knews understands some passengers did not make the red eye flight, deciding instead to call off their entire trip.
