Britain’s national air traffic controller says the computer mishap that caused problems in the system has been fixed – and a return to normal operations is continuing.
The agency has apologized for any delays and inconvenience caused by the problem.
London’s airspace was closed due to a computer failure at one of Britain’s two air traffic control centres.
