Perth Airport power outage: Flight chaos as passengers thrown into disarray

Perth Airport is in chaos after desperately trying to recover from a total blackout because of the severe storms crossing the State.

Flights were up and running but there was a huge backlog with passengers attempting to get through security.

Hundreds of people in high-vis were at Terminal 2 as regional flights were taking off. The line to get through to security was almost out the door as people raced to make their flight on time.

Terminal 1 was less chaotic, almost a ghost town in comparison, as several flights were still cancelled.

An airport spokeswoman said the terminals were “fully operational” as of 10pm last night but the flow-on effects of the impact could still be felt.

Perth Airport has announced a thorough review of its backup power systems in light of the power disruption.
