MIAMI, FL– The Federal Aviation Administration is reporting that an issue with the air traffic control system is to blame for several hours-long flight delays in Florida on Monday.
According to the report, the administration “slowed the volume of air traffic into Florida airspace due to an air traffic computer issue.”
The administration further explained that the issue was with the En Route Automation Modernization at the Miami Air Route Traffic Control Center, which controls millions of cubic miles of airspace for commercial flights.
Some flights were delayed from three to six hours.
Airports that were affected were Miami International Airport (MIA), Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport (FLL), and Orlando International Airport (MCO).
Some airports in the Keys also reported delays.
