Multiple airlines, including Southwest, Delta and American, reported delays nationwide following a computer outage.
The FAA noted that several airlines are experiencing computer issues Monday morning, including United, Southwest, and Alaskan Airlines.
Passengers were encouraged to contact the carriers, the FAA spokesman said.
United Airlines, JetBlue Airways, Alaska Airlines and Delta are the other carriers dealing with problems.
Travelers should check directly with their airlines about the status of their flights. American Airlines said some of its regional carries also use AeroData.
The issue was resolved quickly, but it led to travel disruptions Monday. The glitch was resolved this morning, he added. Delays that began appearing first in Chicago, New York, Miami and Boston spread to Dallas, Atlanta, Detroit and Washington, D.C.
Almost 500 Southwest Airlines flights across the country were delayed, according to The Weather Channel.
A reporter from our sister station in New York City tweeted a statement from Southwest, confirming their flights resumed around 6:05 a.m.
Martin said the impact was "minimal" in terms of the number of planes.
