COLUMBUS (WCMH) — Delta departures were delayed Sunday evening after a ‘systems outage’.

The airline tweeted about the issues, saying “Delta apologizes to customers for the inconvenience and will provide updates as they become available.”

One flight from Columbus to Atlanta is listed as cancelled, with one other Monday morning flight to Atlanta listed as delayed at the John Glenn International airport. There is only one incoming flight listed as delayed, a 6:55 am flight from Los Angeles.

Delta tweeted around midnight saying the ground stop was lifted as their systems began to return to normal, adding that approximately 150 flights were cancelled.

The airline is issuing waivers for travel scheduled Sunday January 29 and Monday January 30. You have to rebook by February 3.
