United Airlines has lifted a nationwide ground stop Tuesday following a “systemwide technology issue,” the airline said.
The airline said the issue lasted a little over an hour and it was holding all aircraft at their departure airports. The airline resumed normal operations at around 12:45 p.m. CT, a statement said.
Flights that were already airborne continued to their destination as planned.
“We will share more information as it becomes available,” the airline said on X when the ground stop was issued. “Thank you for your patience as we work on a resolution to get you on your way as soon as possible.”
United said they are investigating the cause, but it was not a cybersecurity issue.
