Affected 26 flights in Puerto Rico due to technical failure


More than a dozen flights in the Luis Muñoz Marín International Airport (LMM) in Carolina was delayed Monday, due to a technical failure that affected several airlines in the United States.

The company, which operates Aerostar Airport Holdings, said JetBlue, Southwest and United Airlines reported delays in their flights. In total, 26 flights are delayed.

"Airlines have reported that the system is 90% up, but has not been fully restored", says the document provided to The new day for Aerostar.

Major airports in the United States, such as Chicago, New York, Boston, Texas, Miami and Atlanta were also affected.

"Several airlines are having problems with a flight plan cargo management program called AeroData, (a company that develops aircraft tracking technology). Both general and regional operations have been affected to varying degrees, "the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) said in a statement.

Specifically, JetBlue faced problems in the arrival of six flights to the island. These came from New York, New Jersey, Washington and Fort Lauderdale.

The SouthWest airline also faces problems on six of its flights to Puerto Rico. Meanwhile, United reported delays in two trips to the island.

On the other hand, JetBlue reported delays on six outbound flights to Orlando, New Jersey, Connecticut, New York, St. Thomas.

At Southwest, however, four delays were reported on flights to Tampa and Orlando. In addition, United reported delays on two flights to Houston and New Jersey.
