The FAA Says That A Problem With An Air Traffic Computer Is Causing Delays At Florida Airports

According to the Federal Aviation Association, a problem with a computer system used for air traffic management caused hundreds of delays at Florida airports on Monday. This disrupted flights on one of the busiest travel days of the holiday season.

According to Greg Chin, a representative for Miami International Airport, the problem started around one in the afternoon. It took place at the Miami Air Route Traffic Control Center, which is causing flights to be delayed. According to a statement provided by the FAA to Journalistpr, the issue was rectified by six o’clock.

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) stated that they are “working toward safely returning to a normal traffic volume in the Florida area.”

According to the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), the technology in question is the En Route Automation Modernization system. This system “is a modern computer system at the air traffic centers that manage en route traffic.” According to Chin, the ERAM outage has caused more than 50 departures of American Airlines, which serves as the hub carrier for Miami, to be delayed.
