Thousands of airline passengers are facing delays across the United States this morning after a computer glitch at the Federal Aviation Administration grounded domestic planes.
According to TODAY, the delays came after the FAA’s NOTAM system suffered an outage. The NOTAM system provides pilots with crucial information for every domestic flight by providing pilots and other flight personnel with real-time safety information regarding flights and airports. Pilots are required to consult NOTAM before starting each flight.

All domestic departures were grounded since the outage, which will undoubtedly lead to a knock-on effect of delays throughout the day.
In an update, the FAA revealed departures are resuming at Newark and Atlanta airports due to traffic congestion in those areas. The FAA expects flights to resume at other airports this morning.
