FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. – Southwest Airlines requested that the Federal Aviation Administration briefly ground all departing flights nationwide on Tuesday.
The FAA announced Southwest Airlines was experiencing a “technical issue” with an internal system and lifted the pause at about 11:10 a.m.
The low-cost airline, which operates out of Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport, had reported “intermittent” technical difficulties at about 10:30 a.m.
After the deluge on Wednesday caused flooding, FLL closed on Thursday and reopened on Friday morning. Also, last December, Southwest Airlines canceled about 15,000 flights nationwide after a winter storm.
