“We have launched one of our largest ever recruitment drives and hundreds of new security staff are in the process of being vetted and trained. Unfortunately though, this is not a quick process, and at times in the coming weeks, we do expect wait times in security to be up to 90 minutes.”

Ken Wells took to Twitter, stating: “An embarrassment of an operation, it’s killing Manchester’s reputation internationally, I know people who won’t go there just because of how this airport is operated.”

Express.co.uk has contacted Manchester Airport for comment.

A spokesperson said: “We apologise to passengers whose experience on the evening of Friday 1 st April was unsatisfactory.

“Our industry is facing staff shortages and recruitment challenges at present after the most damaging two years in its history.

“On some occasions, including on the evening in question, this led to delays in passing through security, as well as other parts of the passenger journey that are managed by airlines and third parties, such as check-in and baggage reclaim.
