After day of disruption, UK's airports struggle to return to normalcy

  • Normalcy was being restored, albeit slowly, in UK’s airports a day after a major computer glitch hit the national air traffic control center, reports said. Around 40 flights were, however, cancelled.

    Friday's problem was attributed to a technical snag in the flight data system. Flight schedules went haywire as a result.

    Patrick McLoughlin, the transport secretary, described the situation as “unacceptable”.

    The National Air Traffic Services (Nats) said its center at Swanwick was fully operational by Friday afternoon.
