Two Cyprus flights were forced to make emergency landings at Manchester Airport on Wednesday after experiencing technical issues.

The first flight, a Jet2 flight from Leeds Bradford Airport, bound for Paphos Airport in Cyprus, was diverted to Manchester Airport due to possible engine issues. Flight LS405 set off from LBA at 9.15am Wednesday morning but around 30 minutes into the flight the aircraft turned back towards the UK after declaring an emergency.

A spokesman for Manchester Airport confirmed the flight landed safely, but said no further details are available regarding the technical glitch.

The second flight, a TUI flight from Paphos Airport in Cyprus, experienced difficulties and raised the alarm when it was coming in to land at Manchester Airport on Wednesday evening. Emergency services were scrambled with an airport source stating that the Boeing 757 plane had reported an issue with its flaps.

A spokeswoman for TUI said: "We would like to apologise for any inconvenience caused to customers travelling on flight TOM2337 from Paphos to Manchester this evening (12th September 2018).

"Due to a technical issue and as a precautionary measure, the aircraft conducted a priority landing into Manchester Airport. The aircraft landed safely and the flight was met by emergency services in line with standard procedures."
