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.
