Nervous Gatwick resumes services after further suspension

December 21, 2018 / DAVID KAMINSKI-MORROW

London Gatwick airport has resumed operations after a brief further suspension of operation at the hub, initiated following another suspected drone incursion. Flights operated by EasyJet and RwandAir were sent into holding patterns at around 17:00, followed by other services. The RwandAir aircraft appears to have returned to Brussels while a WestJet flight inbound from Glasgow has also diverted. Gatwick had re-opened early on 21 December after an extraordinary halt to operations, lasting more than 24h, in the wake of invasive drone activity.
