“The outage resulted in a temporary ground stop of flights in the region including all Bermuda inbound and outbound traffic.

“As flights were unable to take-off or land during the outage, some flights already airborne, were diverted to the L.F. Wade International Airport including five departing the East Coast that were en-route to Barbados and St. Martin respectively.
