Travel disruption is set to ease today (August 30) with only a small number of flights cancelled at Leeds Bradford Airport, following a technical fault in the UK’s air traffic control (ATC) system earlier this week.

At least three flights at Leeds Bradford Airport were delayed yesterday with cancellations for a further nine.

It came after a technical glitch meant that flights had to be inputted manually by controllers, with the incident described as the worst of its kind in “nearly a decade” by Transport Secretary Mark Harper.

Tens of thousands of passengers across the country faced cancellations because of the impact of the fault and it is thought that at least 280 flights were cancelled yesterday at the UK’s six busiest airports.
