GENEVA (AP) – Switzerland reopened its airspace on Wednesday after a brief safety shutdown due to an unspecified “technical glitch,” officials said.

SkyGuide, the air traffic control service, initially said it would be closed “until further notice” after the morning disruption.

A few hours later, it was said that at 8:30 a.m. (6:30 a.m. GMT; 2:30 a.m. EDT) the airspace had been closed and operations at the two national airports in Geneva and Zurich, as well as air traffic over Switzerland, had resumed.

“SkyGuide regrets this incident and its consequences for its customers and partners, as well as for passengers at both domestic airports,” SkyGuide said in a statement.

A Skyguide spokesman was not immediately available for comment by phone or SMS.

Inflation remains at record low, 7 risk-off stocks to buy

Inflation has gone from being a fleeting problem in itself to an existential threat, prompting the Federal Reserve to take swift, aggressive action. In January 2022, the Consumer Price Index (CPI) showed that inflation in the United States was at its highest level since 1982.

And the market responds predictably to an apparent shift in risk-averse assets. This is having a negative impact on many stocks, particularly in the technology sector, which are no longer justifying their elevated valuations.

But investors are also seeing a drop in cryptocurrency prices and other speculative assets.
