Air Traffic Operations Gradually Resume After All U.S. Flights Grounded Due To FAA System Failure | Eastern North Carolina Now

    The Federal Aviation Administration announced that air traffic operations are gradually resuming in the U.S. after all flights were grounded due to a system failure.

    In an update posted on Twitter at 8:50 a.m. EST, the agency said "the ground stop has been lifted."

    All flights across the United States were grounded early Wednesday morning as the Federal Aviation Administration's Notice to Air Missions System (NOTAM) failed.

    Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg said he has "directed an after-action process to determine the root causes and recommend next steps."

    A NOTAM may state abnormal status of the National Airspace System, including problems such as runway closures or general bird hazard warnings.

    "The FAA is working to restore its Notice to Air Missions System," the FAA tweeted at 6:29 a.m. EST. "We are performing final validation checks and reloading the system now. Operations across the National Airspace System are affected. We will provide frequent updates as we make progress."

    Twenty-eight minutes later, the FAA issued an update, writing, "Cleared Update No. 2 for all stakeholders: The FAA is still working to fully restore the Notice to Air Missions system following an outage. While some functions are beginning to come back on line, National Airspace System operations remain limited."

    At 7:19 a.m., the FAA issued a third tweet: "The FAA is still working to fully restore the Notice to Air Missions system following an outage. 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."

    According to FlightAware, by roughly 8:30 a.m. EST, more than 3,700 flights had been delayed within, into, or out of the U.S. on Wednesday.

    At 8:15 a.m. EST, the FAA announced that departures had resumed at Newark Liberty International Airport in New Jersey and Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport in Georgia because of "air traffic congestion in those areas." The agency reiterated that departures at other airports would resume at 9 a.m.
