Flights have been delayed at the Westcountry’s two major airports after a computer glitch at the UK’s main air traffic control centre.
Flights in to and out of Exeter and Newquay airports have been delayed by at least half an hour due to the issue at Swanwick air traffic control centre in Hampshire.
At Newquay Airport, the 7.15am flight to Gatwick was delayed by 30 minutes with the 10.15am arrival also expected to be delayed by half an hour.
Exeter Airport also seems to be experiencing difficulties ,with flights to Europe delayed by almost three hours in some cases while an incoming flight from Belfast, due at 8.20am, isn’t expected to land until 10.40am.
