Glitch causes airport chaos

Geneva Airport

It’s going to be a tough day at Geneva airport today.

An overnight computer failure closed airspace right across the country overnight – and currently there’s only limited capacity. 

Many incoming flights, especially arriving long hauls have been diverted – mainly to Paris, Lyon or Marseilles – although the Swiss flight from JFK has landed. 

Several morning departures were cancelled – leaving many passengers stranded. 

While some flights are now arriving and departing – there will be delays for the rest of the day, say the airport. 

If you’re flying today or waiting for an arrival - check with your airline.
