A cyberattack on the FAA outage is not proven, according to the White House.

Washington: The White House stated on Wednesday (local time) that it has not observed any proof that the Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA) system breakdown, which has resulted in hundreds of aircraft being delayed, was the result of a cyberattack.

There is currently no proof of a cyber attack, but the President asked DOT to launch a thorough inquiry into the causes, according to a tweet from White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre.

Thousands of flights around the nation were delayed as a result of the overnight outage, which caused considerable inconvenience.

In the meantime, CNN reported that the FAA on Wednesday lifted its order to halt all domestic aircraft departures across the United States after reactivating the system that gives pilots pre-flight safety notices.

On Wednesday morning, US President Joe Biden talked with Pete Buttigieg and received information about the outage.

“They are unaware of the cause, Biden said reporters, adding, “I told them to report to me directly when they discover it. Aircraft can still safely land, but they cannot take off at this time. They don’t know what caused it, but they anticipate that they will have a strong understanding of the cause in a few hours and will respond then.”

It came around two weeks after Southwest Airlines abruptly cancelled more than half of its scheduled flights over a three-day period following Christmas, stranding thousands of travellers.

After its NOTAM (Notice to Air Missions) system malfunctioned, the US regulatory authority, FAA, issued a ground halt order. Before 9 am (local time), the FAA removed the ban, and the organisation declared that nationwide normal air traffic operations had since resumed. According to CNN, it stated that it was still attempting to identify the root of the issue.

Prior to the grounding of all flights across the US due to a technical issue with the FAA’s computer system, all flight operators were notified by the US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) of the failure of the airspace system. More than 400 flights were delayed, according to the report.

In a statement, United Air, a US-based airline, said: “There is now a widespread outage of the FAA Notice to Air Missions (NOTAM) system, which notifies commercial airline pilots of critical real-time flight dangers & restrictions. All domestic flights operated by United have been momentarily delayed. We’ll let you know as we hear more from the FAA.”
