Technical Issues Cause Delays at Several Swedish Airports
On Thursday, Swedish officials reported that a technical issue with air traffic control operations which halted the takeoffs of planes for about 90 minutes has been resolved.
According to The Associated Press, Sweden’s Civil Aviation Administration said authorities were working diligently to get air traffic in the country back to normal after there were several delays. The technical issue started at around 12 p.m. local time, and allowed planes to land at airports in the country, but not to take off.
No flights were canceled during the air traffic control glitches, and it was unclear what caused the technical issue. Investigators are currently trying to diagnose the root cause of the problem.
The air traffic control issues were originally classified as "a communications problem" by Swedish authorities. The issues impacted three airports in Sweden, including Stockholm Arlanda Airport, Stockholm Bromma Airport and Goteborg Landvetter Airport.
