OSLO (Reuters) - Norway has closed part of its airspace due to technical problems, airports operator Avinor said on Tuesday.

"We are working on sorting out the problem. Delays can be expected but we can't say for how long," a company spokesman told Reuters. He said the airspace over Oslo was open and that the closure was affecting western Norway.

European agency Eurocontrol separately said on Twitter the outage was due to a radar failure at the western city of Stavanger, Norway's oil industry capital.
