Flights at Glasgow airport halted due to staff shortage
The National Air Traffic Control centre has apologised for the disruption.
Glasgow Airport halted flights on Thursday morning due to staff shortages.
Outgoing flights were delayed with a number of incoming flights landing early, before the closure began just after 9am.
The disruption due to staff shortages in the air traffic control tower lasted for around half an hour.
The National Air Traffic Control Service (NATS), which is responsible for staffing the tower, apologised for the inconvenience to passengers.
A NATS spokesperson said: "Due to late notice staff sickness at Glasgow air traffic control tower this morning, we had no alternative but to stop flights arriving into and out of the airport for a 30-minute period.
"We were working closely with the airport and airlines to ensure any disruption was kept to a minimum, but we apologise for the inconvenience this caused."
