Air India Keeping An Eye As All Flights Across US Grounded Due To A Glitch

Air India on Wednesday said that it is in touch with the relevant authority after flights across the US were grounded due to a technical glitch in the Federal Aviation Administration's (FAA) computer system.

"We are aware of the snag in the US and we are in touch with the relevant authority," an AI official told ANI.

"Air India around six-seven flights operates in a day to the US in a week," it added.

Air India, India's largest wide-body airline, is the only airline that can operate the maximum number of flights to the US.

Over 400 flights across the United States have been stranded due to a major outage in the computer system of the US regulator Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) on Wednesday.

According to media reports, the flights that were severely impacted were within, into, and out of the United States.

Operations are normal at all the airports in India and as of now there is no impact on flights from India to the US amid a glitch in US Federal Aviation Administration's system, said a senior DGCA official.

However, as of now, India-US flights do not have any impact due to a glitch in the computer system of the US regulatory body, FAA.

FAA has tweeted, "The FAA is working to restore its Notice to Air Missions System. We are performing final validation checks and reloading the system now. Operations across the National Airspace System are affected. We will provide frequent updates as we make progress."

The Federal Aviation Administration stated that it is 'experiencing an outage that is impeding the update of Notice to Air Missions (NOTAMs)' and that 'all flights are unable to be released at this time' due to the enormous glitch that caused flight delays.
