Technical Problems at German Air Traffic Control Solved
The technical problems at air traffic control in Germany have been solved. Fraport, the operator of Frankfurt airport, warned earlier on Wednesday about disruptions to air traffic in European airspace as a result of the disruption.
But after 09:00, German air traffic control was working at full capacity again, a spokesman for Deutsche Flugsicherung (DFS) said.
According to the spokesperson, the problems arose due to a software update in Langen. There, air traffic control checks, among other things, flights to and from the airports of Frankfurt, Cologne and Düsseldorf. Due to the problems, limited air traffic was possible on Wednesday morning.
The German airline Lufthansa still expects flight delays and cancellations due to the problems at air traffic control in Langen. This will mainly be flights to and from Frankfurt, where the largest airport in Germany is located.
