(LONDON) — British Airways said on Saturday there was no evidence that a global breakdown of its IT systems had been caused by a cyber attack.

British Airways said it had cancelled all flights from London’s Heathrow and Gatwick airports scheduled before 1700 GMT on Saturday due to a global computer outage.

“We have experienced a major IT system failure that is causing very severe disruption to our flight operations worldwide,” the airline said in a statement.
