Cancun, Q.R. — Passengers arriving into Cancun Saturday night had to do so in the dark as the newly inaugurated terminal lost its lights.
The loss of electricity was made via social media channels Saturday night as passengers arriving into the Cancun International Airport reported the lights were out. The incident occurred around 10:00 p.m., causing baggage claim delays.
According to the airport authority, “The terminal is without power. We do not know what happened. They are carrying out the corresponding inspections.”
The electric failure happened during the last flight of the day, causing a baggage claim delay of up to 45 minutes due to the lack of power.
Lights were restored early Sunday morning.
