Several departing flights at Norfolk International Airport are delayed as major airline companies are reporting technology issues.

United Airlines said in a response to a passenger’s tweet it is experiencing an outage that is impacting our ability to create release paperwork.

Delta similarly told passengers it is seeing a system-wide outage and is working diligently to get it back up and running. Southwest also said in tweets to passengers it had some technology issues that have since been resolved.

Southwest issued the following statement on its issue: 

As of 6:05am CDT, Southwest Airlines has lifted an internal ground stop implemented for about 40 minutes this morning during an outage with a vendor that services multiple carriers with data used in flight planning. Scattered flight delays are anticipated and Customers should check Southwest.com for the latest updates on specific flights. We’re working with Customers on any impacts to their travel plans and we appreciate their understanding as we place nothing higher than the safe operation of every flight.

Several departing flights from all three airlines were delayed taking off from Norfolk Monday morning.

It was not immediately clear what caused the issues or whether they were connected.
