United Airlines Issued a Ground Stop Due To a 'Systemwide Technology Issue'

(CTN News) – Earlier this week, United Airlines briefly grounded its fleet across the country, the airline and the Federal Aviation Administration announced.

In an interview with News, the FAA confirmed that the airline had requested the ground stop for safety reasons.

“We are experiencing a system-wide technical issue and we are holding all aircraft at their departure airports as a result,” United Airlines stated in a statement.

In the meantime, flights that have already taken off are continuing to their destinations as planned. We are currently investigating the matter and will provide more information as soon as it becomes available.

According to a statement issued by the United Airlines FAA on X, the website that was formerly Twitter, around 1:50 pm ET, the airline lifted the ground stop for flights in the United States and Canada at the request of the FAA.

At about the same time, the airline said in a statement that the ground stop has now been lifted.

In a subsequent statement, United Airlines announced that it had discovered a solution to the technology issue, and flights have resumed. The airline is working with impacted customers to ensure that they are able to reach their destinations as soon as possible.

It’s not the first time this year that commercial United Airlines in the United States have been grounded due to technological problems.

The Federal Aviation Administration experienced a computer outage in January, which resulted in a delay in departures for all U.S. flights for several hours.

It was reported at the time that the delays that affected thousands of flights was the result of a fault in the Notice to Air Missions system, or NOTAM, which provides pilots with the pertinent information they need when they are in the air.

Earlier this year, the FAA ordered a ground stop for the D.C. area airports because of problems with a communication system at a facility that controls air traffic in Virginia. As soon as less than an hour had passed since departures were halted, the FAA announced that flights to area airports had resumed.
