- The Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) has clarified that flights are operating at Indian airports and the technical failure in the US has not affected flights from India. Flights were disrupted for hours in the US due to the failure, but the DGCA said that there is nothing to worry about in India. A senior DGCA official in India said that operations are normal at all airports in the country and as of now, there seems to be no cause for concern.
- After a technical failure in the US Federal Aviation Administration system on Wednesday, flights to and from the US were affected within the US. It was told that 1300 flights had to be canceled and at least 9600 flights were delayed.
- America has denied any cyber attack behind the technical failure. The White House Press Secretary said that there is no issue of cyber attack here. President Joe Biden has also directed the Department of Transportation to swiftly investigate, settle and normalize transportation.
- The US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) said air traffic was slowly returning to normal and was investigating the cause of the problem. The US aviation regulator said in a tweet, “The FAA is still working to fully restore the Notice to Air Mission System following an outage, while some issues have been addressed and National Airspace System operations are limited.” .
- According to media reports, the US aviation regulator, citing preliminary investigation, said that the outage was caused by damage to the database files. Due to this, the main system and backup crashed, which is being investigated. The Aviation Administration also said that work is being done to prevent this from happening in the future.
- According to the report, this is the first time in almost two decades that flights in the US have been affected in this way. Flight delays and cancellations are on the rise despite steps being taken by the US regulator. Till the writing of the news, the problem has not been resolved and the work of recovering the system is going on.
- An Air India official said that there could be some delay in its flights from the US due to congestion at US airports. The company operates direct flights to five US cities. Hundreds of flights were canceled in the US on Wednesday morning after a technical glitch in the system for providing safety information to the flight crew.
- The official also said that Air India flights to New York, Chicago and San Francisco landed safely. Air India operates around 51 flights a week to various cities in the US.
- However, such outages have not happened for the first time. Earlier, the FAA had faced such a problem on January 2, when several flights were affected by a failure in the computer system. Then only flights going to Florida were affected and the effect of this outage remained at the domestic level only.
- Like America, Canada has also seen some problems. For example, the traffic control manager of NAV Canada told that there was a technical fault in the messaging system for 90 minutes, but it is being investigated whether it is related to America or not.
