Thousands of flights were once again able to depart major US airports on Wednesday morning, after the Federal Aviation Adminstration (FAA) lifted a nationwide halt on all domestic flights following a failure of its communications system earlier in the day. At around 9 a.m. Eastern Time (1400 UTC/GMT), the FAA said that the ground stop it ordered earlier Wednesday was lifted. The agency ordered all domestic flights to be paused in the early hours of the morning as it worked to restore a system called NOTAM, or Notice to Air Missions system, which issues safety notices to pilots.
