NEW YORK (WABC) -- A ground stop was briefly in place Saturday afternoon, impacting flights into and out of major airports in the area including LaGuardia, JFK and Newark.
The airports serving the Washington, D.C. and Baltimore areas were also impacted.
The FAA said it briefly reduced the volume of air traffic to adjust for a temporary staffing issue at a control center in Jacksonville, Florida.
The ground stop has since been lifted, but travelers were warned to expect residual delays.
