Gatwick Airport To Schedule Limited Flights

Gatwick Airport, which was shut down for more than two days after dozens of drone sightings, said it planned to reopen Friday for a “limited number” of flights.

Police say the drone operators are yet to be found but the hunt still continues.

“Gatwick’s runway is currently available and a limited number of aircraft are scheduled for departure and arrival,” the airport said on Twitter.

It advised passengers to check the status of their flights before travelling to the airport.

The airport shut down late Wednesday following reports that two drones were flying above the airfield, causing severe disruptions just days before Christmas, the heaviest travel times of the year and leaving thousands stranded in London, Naija News learnt.
