FAA system failure bans flights nationwide

Austin (AP) – Flights are being delayed at several locations across the United States, including at Bergstrom International Airport in Austin, due to a computer glitch at the Federal Aviation Administration.

There were 760 delays in, to and from the US at approximately 6:30 AM ET, according to flight tracking website FlightAware.

The agency tweeted 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.”

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.
