Small number of flights resume at Gatwick after drone disruption
Runway back in operation after 36 chaotic hours but 100 flights due to be cancelled on Friday
Gatwick’s runway has reopened and a limited number of planes have arrived and departed, after the airport was shut for almost 36 hours by drone sightings overhead.
The airport said “additional mitigating measures” put in place by the police and military were allowing planes to fly again, although at least 100 of the 753 scheduled flights on Friday were due to be cancelled, with planes and crews out of place, and many have already been delayed.
