Dozens of flights were disrupted including a Jet2 flight to Newcastle which was due to depart at 9:30pm on Monday.

Around 200 people were due to board the plane ended up being ushered intoan arrival lounge and spent the night sleeping on the floor, passengers said. 

Longbenton grandmother, Brenda Prior, 69, and her wheelchair-using sister Iris Mowett, 73, spent an uncomfortable night on the airport floor with no information from Jet2 staff.

“We were told there would be a delay when we checked in but didn’t think it would be anything like this,” she told the Chronicle.

“There’s around 200 of us waiting, the plane that was supposed to take us home was diverted to Lanzarote so we’re just waiting.

“At around half three the Jet2 staff disappeared and we’ve just been left, it’s shocking really, my sister is in a wheelchair and there’s little ones here all lying on the floor.

“We’ve been given €20 for food and water but theres only got us a sandwich. It’s shocking, it’s not good enough.”

Newcastle Airport website says the flight is now scheduled to arrive at 7:30pm on Tuesday, though Brenda said they’ve not been told that.

Lisa Henderson, 33, from Consett, has been stranded with her two-year-old baby and her partner overnight.

She said: “We’ve run out of nappies and I was told just to ask for some from other parents.

“No one knows what is going on, there are cockroaches crawling on the floor and we’ve had to break into the cafe to get milk for our babies.

“It’s been 12 hours now with no food or sleep and there’s no assistance.”

A spokesperson for Jet2 said it has been unable to secure overnight accommodation for the stranded passengers on Monday night and apologised

for the situation.

They said: “Due to an incident involving another airline at Fuerteventura Airport, the runway was closed for several hours, causing major disruption to all airlines flying to and from Fuerteventura. As a result, our scheduled LS522 flight to Newcastle was unable to depart.

“Despite our best efforts, we were unable to source suitable accommodation at such short notice, however we will be taking our customers to a hotel today where lunch and day room facilities will be available before their flight departs at 5pm.

“We apologise to all affected customers for any inconvenience caused by these extraordinary circumstances, which were completely beyond out control.”

In July this year, a Jet2 plane made a dramatic emergency landing for the second time in two weeks
