Unlit runways cause delays at Heathrow

A London runway failing to light up has caused significant delays for early morning flights, Heathrow confirmed this morning.

An official tweet sent out by the airport said “we’re currently investigating and working to fix a technical issue with the lighting system for the runways.”

Passengers and freight forwarding companies were requested to keep abreast of the status of flights.

Elsewhere on social media complaints came flying in from airline passengers in the US and elsewhere as people and affected parties voiced their disgruntlement over the delays.

Scurrying to make alternative arrangements, British airport authorities diverted planes destined to take off from and land at Heathrow, the UK’s largest airport.
