Technical issues cause delays to flights

Loganair said there will be delays expected on flights today (Monday) as a result of a technical issue with air traffic control systems. 

The National Air Traffic Services confirmed it was experiencing difficulties and had implemented restrictions on traffic flow across the UK.

In a statement released on Twitter, Loganair said: “Delays and disruption are expected throughout the day for all airlines. 

“Under these circumstances, Loganair is offering passengers travelling today the opportunity to rebook within the next 48 hours, free of charge, where there is a seat available.”

The National Air Traffic Services reiterated that “UK airspace was not closed” and the restrictions were in place for safety.

    At last some improvement from Loganairs Jonathan Hinkle towards recognising that his customers need to be kept informed of what may be affecting their flight. At last the C.E.O. has seen a better customer ethic is achievable and should or better still take his company forward. Hopefully further improvements can now come in the foreseeable future.
