UK Flight Control Chaos: System Failure Resolved


British air traffic control authority (Nats) announced this afternoon the end of the emergency triggered by the “technical failure” of the data processing systems registered since this morning at a national level throughout the United Kingdom, with serious consequences for departing or arriving passengers: consequences that fell on one of the field days of the return journeys at the end of August, and also extended to nearby Ireland as well as numerous European and non-European airports.

The nature of the hitch was “identified” and engineers “remedied” the fault, a spokesman confirmed.

The delays and cancellations that have accumulated in the meantime (thousands for the former, up to over 500 for the latter) are however destined to make their effects felt for several hours, the authorities and representatives of the carriers pointed out. With a queuing of planes that cannot be disposed of until at least tomorrow before a full return to normality.
