Southwest Airlines has lifted its brief ground stop on all of its departures as of Tuesday morning after the FAA requested the airline to pause all departures due to the airline's equipment issues.

One flight departing from the Corpus Christi International Airport to Houston-Hobby Airport was delayed during the ground stop, but resumed on time.

"Passengers scheduled to travel on Southwest Airlines flights from Corpus Christi International Airport should check their airline app or visit Southwest Airlines' website for the most updated information on their flight status. Passengers are encouraged to contact Southwest Airlines for the latest updates and make alternate travel arrangements if necessary," said CCIA officials.

In response to a tweet from a customer, Southwest said, “We have had to implement a ground stop as a result of intermittent issues that were experienced, and we should hopefully be resuming our operation as soon as possible.”
