A massive computer failure has shut down London airspace, and airline share prices are getting hit.

It's not likely to be an issue for a lot of them: Airline stocks have been soaring in recent weeks. Falling oil prices mean cheaper fuel, one of the main costs of running an airline, so the recent collapse of oil prices is a positive thing for them.

INTERNATIONAL AIRLINES GROUP: -1.3%

RYANAIR: -0.3%

LUFTHANSA: -0.7%

AIR FRANCE: -1.4%
