Brazil Air Traffic Disruption

Flights halted at Brazil airports
Brazilian aviation authorities have suspended flights from three major airports after a failure in the air traffic communications system.

Take-offs were suspended in the capital Brasilia and in Belo Horizonte, while most were also cancelled at Sao Paulo's domestic airport.

International flights to and from Sao Paulo's other airport were unaffected.

I bet it is sabotage. Can't believe atc workers would do such a thing.

Don't know whether it is sabotage or what. Just know I had a business appointment at 1800 yesterday in Sao Paulo, I was booked on JJ3215 from CNF to CGH at 1150. I booked an earlier flight predicting some delay.

The bottom line: at 1700 I was still at the airport, no sign of the plane leaving Sao Paulo, to come to CNF and turnaround back to CGH. Took my bags and went back home.
