Luxair’s flight from Faro, Portugal, to Luxembourg was delayed by 24 hours leaving passengers at the Portuguese airport.

Luxair flight LG786 was to take place on Saturday at 19:10 but was delayed due to technical difficulties. Speaking to RTL, general director of Luxair Gilles Feith said that an essential part of the aircraft had to be replaced.

The approximately 100 passengers who had their return to Luxembourg postponed were accommodated in a hotel. They had to board another flight the next day.

Delano reached out to Luxair for further comment on the delayed flight, but a response hasn’t been issued yet.
