What's Happened At Southampton?

Wed Jul 12, 2006 10:37 pm

I've just looked out of the window at Bournemouth to see several Flybe and BA aircraft diverted.

Runway blocked at SOU?

Must be something bad as all their arrivals are cancelled on the airport website and all the departures are "Contact Your Airline!"

Anyone down that way know any news?

At least it wasn't an aircraft incident.

BAA say:

Flight disruptions at Southampton Airport - 12 July 2006

Flights at Southampton Airport are currently being disrupted due to problems with the communication system, including telephones. This problem has been caused by off airport building work, and BT are carrying out repairs. They hope to have the repairs completed within a couple of hours.



In the meantime some flights have been diverted, delayed or cancelled. Passengers are requested to speak directly with their airline reservations departments if they require further information.



We are sorry for any inconvenience that this may cause and we are working hard to resolve the situation as soon as possible.



Further information will be provided as soon as possible.

Agreed, glad it wasn't anything aviation related, especially after the last few days!

Deffinatley bad for business at the airport but with it being BT nothing unusual!
