UK air traffic control says ‘technical issue’ hitting flights on busy travel day

The air traffic control system in Britain has encountered a “technical issue” that has the potential to cause flight delays on Monday, a day marked as the conclusion of a holiday weekend and a notably busy period for air travel.
The National Air Traffic Service said it had “applied traffic flow restrictions to maintain safety. Engineers are working to find and the fix the fault.”

Scottish airline Loganair said there has been “a network-wide failure of U.K. air traffic control computer systems.”

“Although we are hopeful of being able to operate most intra-Scotland flights on the basis of local co-ordination and with a minimum of disruption, north-south and international flights may be subject to delays,” it said.
