UK: disruptions in air traffic

Limited number of aircraft in British skies

The United Kingdom's national air traffic control agency announced that it has limited the number of planes in circulation today in British airspace. A reasoned decision as a result of a technical problem. This choice caused delayed and canceled flights across Europe, with passengers in some cases being stranded on the airport tarmac shortly before boarding.

"We are currently experiencing a technical problem and have implemented traffic flow restrictions to maintain safety. Engineers are working to find and resolve the fault", Britain's National Air Traffic Service (Nats) said in a statement, adding that it airspace was not closed.

It has had serious repercussions especially at Irish airports. Companies like British Airways and Ryanair, as well as Manchester, London-Stansted, London-Gatwick and London-Heathrow airports said they were working closely with the UK's national air traffic control authority to reduce the impact on aerial operations.
