A technical problem at GoJet Airlines is causing delays and cancellations for Delta and United passengers on some regional routes this evening (July 24). GoJet operates more than 220 flights daily to 60 destinations, which are marketed by Delta and United as Delta Connection and United Express.

Passengers reported delays of several hours, because of GoJet computer problems.

A spokeswoman for GoJet confirmed that the airline is in the midst of a computer outage. “We are seeing improvement and hope to have the issue resolved soon. We apologize to our passengers for any inconvenience.”

It is GoJet’s second major interruption in just over seven months. On Dec. 1, 2015 the company ran into problems when it switched over to a new computer system, resulting in similar issues.

This is the ninth major technical glitch to affect the US commercial aviation industry this year, according to a Quartz count.
