Flights halted for an hour at Sweden’s busiest airport
Arriving and departing flights at Sweden’s busiest airport were halted for an hour on Monday afternoon after a drone was spotted in the area.
The shutdown between 15:50 and 16:50 brought a spell of travel chaos to Stockholm’s Arlanda Airport.
Two incoming flights warned that they were low on fuel and were given special permission to land during the halt in flights. Emergency services were called to the runway, but both planes landed normally at 16:19 and 16.22.
As air traffic resumed with knock-on delays during the day, police were called in to try to locate the drone and its pilot.
