DENVER – The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) said technical issues affecting multiple airlines are resolved, but delays are still possible with flights around the U.S.

Currently, a total of 81 flights are delayed out of Denver International Airport. Most of those delays involve Southwest Airlines flights, but it’s unclear if those delays are related to the technical problems reported around the country.

Dan Landson of Southwest said there was an outage with a vendor that services multiple carriers with data used in flight planning. Southwest said it lifted an internal ground stop at 5:05 a.m. that had been implemented for about 40 minutes.

On Twitter, Delta Air Lines called the glitch a ” brief third-party technology issue.” The company said the issue has been resolved and no cancellations are anticipated.

Issues are being reported at airports in Chicago, NYC, Boston, Atlanta, Miami and Detroit.
