US Flights Delayed

US Flights Delayed

The US Federal Aviation Administration has lifted its grounding order of airline flights that has affected air traffic schedules in and out of Barbados.

Planes in the US were grounded by an outage to a system that provides pilots with notices they need before flying.

Normal operations have resumed, but delays from the ground stop continue.  More than five thousand flights have been delayed across the US.

Chief Executive Officer of the Grantley Adams International Airport, Hadley Bourne, tells Starcom Network News that the delays of flights into Barbados could stretch into tomorrow.

Mr. Bourne says it will take some time for the flights to get back on schedule.

Meantime, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) says normal air traffic operations are resuming gradually in the US after hours of delays.

There was a problem with the system that alerts pilots to potential hazards on flight routes.

Flights already in the air were allowed to continue to their destinations.

US President Joe Biden was briefed on the matter and the White House said there was no evidence of a cyberattack “at this point”.

In a tweet, the White House Press Secretary said the president had called for a “full investigation”.
