Air traffic control: NATS 'not ruling out anything' after glitch causes widespread disruption

  • The chief executive of National Air Traffic Services is unable to reveal the cause of the recent air traffic control glitch that affected thousands of passengers, but a French airline misfiling its flight plan is suspected as the potential cause. NATS denies any indication of a cyber attack being the cause.
  • The glitch resulted in the cancellation of at least 281 flights across the UK's six busiest airports, affecting around a quarter of a million people. EasyJet has announced repatriation flights and the use of larger aircraft on key routes to alleviate the disruption.
  • British athletes were stranded in Budapest due to the flight chaos, while frustrated holidaymakers described their experiences of being stranded without essential medication and enduring long delays at airports.
