The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) said that an issue with a vital air traffic control system that caused aircraft delays at major airports in Florida on Monday has been resolved.

“The computer issue has been resolved. The FAA is working toward safely returning to a normal traffic rate in the Florida airspace,” the U.S. agency said in a statement.

A malfunction with the En Route Automation Modernization (ERAM) system used to control aviation traffic forced the FAA to issue a so-called ground stop order on Monday afternoon, halting traffic into Florida airports.

The incident was the latest to impede U.S. travel after a massive winter storm during the Christmas holiday season forced Southwest Airlines (LUV.N) to cancel thousands of flights and cripple its operations.

The malfunctioning ERAM system at a major regional air traffic control centre in Miami was responsible for dozens of flight delays at Miami International Airport as well as flights into other airports in the southern United States.
