A computer software problem Thursday resulted in a ground stop of flights at Los Angeles International Airport for about an hour, authorities said.

The software problem at the FAA’s Approach Control in San Diego was reported about 7:20 a.m. and only affected LAX, according to the Federal Aviation Administration.

All departing and arriving flights were affected by the ground stop, which began about 8 a.m., said Nancy Suey Castles of LAX. At 8:30 a.m., departures resumed, and at 9 a.m. arrivals resumed.

Because of the ground stop, 62 arriving flights were delayed and three were canceled; and 83 departing flights were delayed and four were canceled.

Passengers are advised to check with their airlines for their current flight status.
