Travelers en route to the UK can also experience extended delays on Tuesdays and later in the week. British Air Traffic Control has determined the cause of the glitch, but has not yet been able to fully resolve the issue.
Due to an outage at the National Air Traffic Service (NATS), more than five hundred flights were canceled on Monday. Air traffic from Schiphol Airport was also affected. Dozens of flights were delayed or cancelled.
The problems appear less serious on Tuesday morning than on Monday, because Schiphol Airport reported that only one of dozens of flights to London has been canceled so far. Passengers who were unable to fly on Monday will be rebooked on Tuesday.
However, Heathrow, Gatwick and London Luton airports are advising travelers to keep a close eye on the website for arrival and departure times on Tuesday. Airports are also expecting a delay today.
According to Flightradar24, there were 23 delayed flights and 29 canceled flights at Heathrow on Tuesday. London’s second largest airport, Gatwick, handles 23 cancellations.
