US Airports in Chaos Following FAA System Outage

January 11, 2023

UNITED STATES, 11 JAN | Following an outage of the NOTAM (Notice to Air Missions) system, flights across the United States are getting delayed in droves. Ground stops are being ordered in airports around the states, making all traffic come to an abrupt halt.

In an earlier advisory on its website, the FAA said its NOTAM system had failed, although NOTAMs issued before the outage were still viewable.

NOTAMS are essential for flight as it gives important messages to pilots regarding their flight. Due to this system outage, more than 760 flights were delayed within, into, or out of the United States in the past hour.

This is a developing story, and we will keep you updated.
