MIAMI – A ground stop issued by United Airlines for all domestic flights Sunday night has been lifted.

Airline officials said it initially issued the ground stop due to an information technology issue.

A ground stop, which is an air traffic control measure, halts the departure of aircraft.

United Airlines officials said they were working to get flights on their way.

"We apologize for the inconvenience to our customers," airline officials said.
