FAA computer failure delays flights at Bush and Hobby airports

Flights are delayed at multiple locations across the United States due to a computer glitch at the Federal Aviation Administration.

According to flight tracking website FlightAware, there were 760 delays in, to and from the United States at approximately 6:30 AM ET. The agency reported in tweet that it is working to restore its air mission notification system.

“We are now conducting final checks and rebooting the system,” the FAA said. “Operations through the national airspace system are affected.” The FAA is working to restore the so-called air mission notification system.

Previously, NOTAM could be obtained from the hotline, but with the advent of the Internet, this was discontinued. Alerts range from mundane information about airport construction to urgent flight restrictions or broken equipment.

The agency said it will provide frequent updates as it progresses.
