DELAYS have been reported at Scotland´s main airports on Monday after a technical hitch overnight produced interference on radio frequencies being used by air traffic control.
The issue occurred at the Scottish Air Traffic Control centre and the airports which have been affected are Edinburgh, Glasgow, Aberdeen and Prestwick.
Nats, which provides air traffic control services in Britain, said:
“It only affects part of Scottish airspace and flights from some Scottish airports this morning may be delayed as a result.”
A spokesman for Edinburgh Airport said: “Due to an ongoing issue at the Scottish airspace control centre, there will be a delay to all flights this morning. We are still assessing the situation but customers should expect delays.”
A spokesman for Aberdeen Airport said that they experienced a small number of delays but expected the situation to return to normal “as soon as possible.”
Passengers were advised to check with their airlines for updated information.
