British Airways (BA) had to cancel about 100 flights in and out bound at Gatwick and Heathrow airports  on Wednesday after its system was interrupted.

According to reports, at least 18,000 passengers were stranded after British Airways service to and from Gatwick and Heathrow airports were canceled.

More than 200 BA flights have to be delayed according to the British media outlets.

British Airways however declined to confirm the amount of service canceled.

“We are working as quickly as possible to resolve system issues that have resulted in the cancellation and suspension of multiple destinations near London airport,” the flight said in a statement.

“We are aware that this situation is very frustrating for passengers and advises them to get the latest information from BA staff.”

It’s the latest incident of disruption that has affected BA for the past few years.

In 2017, disrupted systems around the world caused tens of thousands of passengers to be affected, while in 2018 cyber attacks saw hundreds of thousands of customers’ personal data stolen.
