Almost all domestic flights were halted this morning in the United States, as&rsquo A ground stop was ordered to the airlines. The outage interrupted the Notice to Air Missions System (NOTAM), which allows communication of landing risks and conditions to aircraft in flight. The system has now resumed and the ground shutdown has been lifted, the FAA announces.
While service is gradually resuming, the causes of the problem are still unknown. The FAA is currently investigating the cause of the outage.
Update 5: Normal air traffic operations are resuming gradually across the U.S. following an overnight outage to the Notice to Air Missions system that provides safety info to flight crews. The ground stop has been lifted.
We continue to look into the cause of the initial problem
