Bern, June 15 (QNA) - Swiss airspace reopened Wednesday morning after a computer glitch grounded flights across the country for several hours, officials said.
"Swiss airspace is now open again," Swiss air traffic control service Skyguide said, adding "the technical malfunction at Skyguide has been resolved".
It did not say what had caused the problem that shut Swiss airspace for hours Wednesday morning, but said that "air traffic over Switzerland and operations at the national airports of Geneva and Zurich are resuming".
The chaos erupted when Sky guide announced it had "experienced a technical malfunction in the early hours of this morning, which is why Swiss airspace has been closed to traffic for safety reasons".
The closure blocked all overflight of the country, and forced a number of flights to be rerouted to airports in neighboring countries. (QNA)
