BREAKING: All flights across US grounded due to a Federal Aviation Administration computer system glitch


According to several US media, all flights across the US have been grounded due to a computer system glitch at the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).

In a statement on Twitter, the FAA said: “The FAA is working to restore its Notice to Air Missions System. We are performing final validation checks and repopulating the system now. Operations across the National Airspace System are affected. We will provide frequent updates as we make progress.

A little later, the FAA ordered airlines to pause all domestic departures until 09:30 Eastern Time (14:30 UTC) to allow the agency to validate the integrity of flight and safety information.

The full extent of the delays was not immediately known. Several airports advised passengers to check with their airlines for the latest information.
