Ground stop in N.Z? Heads up, seems to be a ground stop throughout N.Z. due to radar fault. Not a question but I thought you'd like to know. 1.35pm AET 23 June.
Update 14.05pm AET. N.Z. ground stop still in place, nationwide. Chaos at AKL.
Update 14.20 AET: radar fault fixed, air traffic moving again in N.Z., quite a backlog.

An internal network failure occurred at approximately 14.41 today. Airways immediately suspended all flights while we investigated the issue and until we could be satisfied that we could operate safely. We have now identified the issue and thoroughly tested the integrity of the system. At no point was the safety of any airport operations compromised.We resumed limited operations at 16:00 and expect to resume full service by 16:30.Airways apologises to all passengers who have been affected by this outage.Our immediate priority is resolving the situation and we are unavailable for interviews at this stage.
