About 200 domestic flights from Logan Airport were delayed on Wednesday because the Federal Aviation Administration was down all over the country. Still, the organization reported that operations had resumed just before 9 a.m.
Due to issues with its Notice to Airmen System, the FAA made the public aware of the outage before 7 a.m. on Wednesday. At around 7 a.m., FlightAware’s flight tracking website listed 760 delays inside, into, or out of the United States.
According to MassPort, there were 20 delayed Logan flights as of 8:15 a.m., including ones to Charlotte, North Carolina, Chicago-O’Hare, and Baltimore.
On the MassPort website, you may track the progress of your flights. Before 7 a.m., there were fewer than 10 delays. At nearly nine in the morning, the FAA tweeted that it had removed a ban on ground departures.
The encyclopedia said, “After a problem overnight with the Notice Airmen system, which gives safety information to flight crews, normal air traffic operations are slowly getting back to normal across the United States.”
Soon after the ground halt was dismissed, the flights started taking off, but the delays went on for the whole day. The passengers stuck at the airport also stated that the airport became too overcrowded, which made waiting in lines for security or ATMs very difficult.
