All Flights Across US Grounded Due To System Failure
All flights across the United States of America have been grounded following a system failure on Wednesday.
The development reportedly left passengers stranded at various airports across the globe, as planned departures were suddenly cancelled.
The US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) confirmed the glitch in its notice-to-air missions (NOTAM) system in a statement.
The agency is in charge of regulating all aspects and protocols related to aviation for all flights entering and leaving the US.
FAA says there is a problem with the system that alerts pilots to potential hazards on flight routes.
The agency said they are performing final validation checks and reloading the system.
“The FAA is working to restore its notice to the air missions system. We are performing final validation checks and reloading the system now,” the statement reads.
“Operations across the national airspace system are affected.”
Following the system collapse, FAA ordered airlines to suspend operations until the issue is resolved.
“The FAA has ordered airlines to pause all domestic departures until 9 a.m. Eastern Time to allow the agency to validate the integrity of flight and safety information.”
