DFW initially issued a statement at 4:00 p.m. LT announcing that #American #Airlines suffered an interruption in its system which would cause that no airline flight could be carried out normally due to this failure in the system. The airport informed that they were already mobilizing all their resources to support all the passengers who were affected.

#At 5:00 p.m. LT the #Federal #Aviation #Administration (FAA) ordered the closure of the airspace at the ARTCC in #Fort-Worth due to the fact that a “COVID level 3” cleaning would be carried out, this after one of the air controllers in turn.

#Around 5:40 p.m. #Lt., the airspace was reopened and operations began to take place, but some flights with delays exceeding two hours, #American #Airlines and #Suthwest #Airlines They have not issued statements about it, but several of their users on #Twitter have stated that some of the flights have already been canceled due to the delays that are occurring.
