Some CVG flights delayed, canceled because of FAA computer outage

CINCINNATI — The Federal Aviation Administration’s mandatory ground stop has been lifted and flights at all US airports are gradually resuming following a massive Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) computer outage.

The agency said the issue started overnight with the Notice to Air Missions System (NOTAM).

NOTAM is used to alert pilots about closed runways, equipment outages and other potential hazards along a flight path, the FAA said.

According to the White House Press Secretary, President Biden has been briefed on the situation and there is no evidence that this is a cyberattack.

According to CVG’s flight status website, 24 flights have been delayed and four have been canceled as a result of the mandatory ground stop by the FAA.

There were around 50 flights scheduled to depart from CVG before 9 a.m. It is unclear at this time how this incident will impact travel throughout the day.
