More than 100 flights have been delayed or cancelled following a technical glitch at Vienna Airport in Austria.

Almost 1,000 passengers were stranded at the airport on Sunday due to the disruption.

The delays were caused by a fault in the system that automatically transfers flight planning data between air traffic control hubs in Brussels and Vienna.

"Almost 1,000 passengers were stranded at the airport on Sunday due to the disruption."

Airport staff stepped in to manually enter the information in order to keep the system operational.

Although the technical glitch was resolved, 113 flights had to be either cancelled or delayed.

Reuters reported the airport stating in its website on Monday that the "Austrian air traffic control has solved the issue. At the moment there are no delayed or canceled flights. We advise passengers to contact their airline."
