Flights in the United States were affected Wednesday morning after the Federal Aviation Administration said it experienced a computer glitch.
All flights in the US were grounded after the incident, a source with knowledge of the situation told NBC News.
The FAA said in a notice on its website that its Notice to Air Missions (NOTAM) system had “failed” on Wednesday morning. A NOTAM is a notice containing essential information for workers involved in flight operations.
“Technicians are currently working to restore the system and there is no estimate for service restoration at this time,” he said.
“Operations throughout the National Airspace System are affected,” the FAA said in a statement to NBC News.
“The FAA is working to restore its Air Mission Notification System. We are running final validation checks and repopulating the system now,” he said.
“We will provide frequent updates as we progress,” he said.
