More than 200 flights at Heathrow Airport have been grounded due to a “technical issue” which emerged on Sunday.

Around 58 of arrivals were cancelled due to the knock-on effect and a further 30 departing flights were grounded and all the flights affected on Monday were operated by British Airways.

A Heathrow spokesman said, “Following yesterday’s technical issue, Heathrow’s systems are stable and the airport is operating as normal.

“We apologise for the inconvenience this caused our passengers.

“Our teams continue to closely monitor our systems and will be on hand across our terminals to provide assistance to passengers.”

A British Airways spokeswoman said, “The technical issue with Heathrow Airport’s systems has now been resolved but. after 10 hours of disruption across all terminals, we do expect to see a knock-on effect to today’s short-haul schedule.

“We’ve introduced a flexible booking policy and have brought in extra colleagues to help our customers get on their way as smoothly as possible.”
