Multiple flights not taking off at Syracuse airport due to FAA computer outage

    Syracuse, N.Y. — Multiple flights at the Syracuse airport have been delayed after the Federal Aviation Administration grounded flights due to a nationwide system outage.

    A least one flight – a JetBlue plane to New York City – appears to be stuck waiting on a taxiway, according to the airline’s website.

    On the Hancock International Airport’s website most departing flights have been delayed until at least 9 a.m. The first flight of the day, to the Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport, was scheduled to leave at 5:20 a.m. but now leaves at 9:05 a.m.

    The FAA grounded all domestic departures until 9 a.m., the administration said in a Tweet.

    Syracuse airport officials said for passengers to confirm impacts to their flights with the airline directly. The airport will be providing updates on Twitter, officials said.

    President Joe Biden has been briefed on the outage, his Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said in a Tweet. At the time there is no evidence of a cyber-attack but an investigation has been ordered, she said.
