JetBlue Airways is forced to shut down for about one hour

JetBlue Airways (New York) said yesterday afternoon (February 26) that its flights would resume after it had earlier voluntarily issued a systemwide temporary ground halt for all operations because of an information technology (IT) problem with its computers.

Flights restarted around 3:45 p.m. (1545) Eastern time after all flights were halted about an hour earlier.

The company was already flying a reduced schedule on Friday due to a large snowstorm in the Northeast United States.
