According to a spokesman for air traffic controllers, there is a glitch in the computer systems of British air traffic control. “Engineers are working to find and fix problems,” the spokesperson said.
British media reported that the problem was spreading across the country and hundreds of flights had been delayed. Many airports and airlines in the UK say they are trying to figure out what this means for passengers and when the outage will be resolved. They advise people traveling today to check the status of their flight in advance.
Schiphol warns that the defect will also affect many Dutch passengers. The airport has declared that no or limited air traffic is possible to and from Great Britain. In addition, the glitch may also have consequences for flights flying over the country.
Schiphol reported flight cancellations to various destinations in the UK, including Birmingham, Glasgow, Manchester, London and Bristol. Flights to the UK from elsewhere in Europe will also be affected.
