Southwest Airlines Has Computer Problems


DENVER – Southwest Airlines is having problems with its computers, causing problems for some flights in Denver. The problem continued until Tuesday.

The FAA issued a nationwide temporary ground stop on Tuesday at the request of Southwest Airlines, but soon after, the ground stop was lifted.

Denver International Airport said Tuesday afternoon that most flights from the southwest had been canceled for the day.

As of Tuesday evening, it was not clear if the issue had been resolved.

On Monday evening, a spokesperson for the DIA confirmed that four flights had been affected locally by IT glitches, resulting in delays in the departure and arrival of the flights.

Responding to several questions and complaints on Twitter, Southwest Airlines confirmed it was experiencing a system error.

In a statement, Southwest said it began resuming flight operations from 10 p.m. Monday. However, DIA tweeted Tuesday morning that Southwest was still experiencing network connectivity issues.

The airline said its third-party weather data provider encountered intermittent performance issues on Monday evening, which prevented weather information from being transmitted. This information is needed to safely operate his aircraft, Southwest said.

Southwest implemented a group shutdown to protect the safety of crew and customers as the provider worked to restore connectivity Monday night.
