Gatwick Airport suffers major delays and suspended flights, caused by a power cut

On the 10th of July, a power outage at Gatwick Airport caused a computer meltdown in air traffic control systems, resulting in flights being suspended for almost 2 hours.

IT system affected all inbound and outbound flights, and though flights had resumed 2 hours after the power cut, there were ongoing delays and cancellations, due to the backlog.

A spokeswoman for Gatwick airport said that as of 7.30pm a total of 26 flights had been diverted and eight cancelled.
