In the meantime, Perth Airport has generators to supply some light.

The incident affected baggage drop-off as well as most of the baggage carousels.

9News understands travellers in one plane on the tarmac were waiting to leave for more than an hour.

The incident also affected the air bridges, which delayed some passengers disembarking from their flights.

One traveller told 9News he got to the airport and the doors were shut.

“No one can do anything,” he said.

Another traveller said “we don’t know what we’re doing”.

“We don’t know if we’re meant to be back in a hotel or finding somewhere to stay,” he said.
