WASHINGTON (AP) -Flights are being delayed in the Washington region due to technical issues at a Federal Aviation Administration center in Washington.

Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport says a computer outage is limiting flight arrivals and departures there as well as Washington’s Reagan National Airport and Dulles International Airport.

An FAA spokeswoman says the agency will be issuing a statement soon. But she did not immediately comment on the problem.

American Airlines said in a tweet that air traffic control issues are impacting all East Coast flights. The airline is urging passengers to plan accordingly.
