(CNN) — The Federal Aviation Administration said the technical outage this morning was “short lived” and that delays because of it should be “minimal.”

“The service is back on line a few minutes ago and delays should be minimal,” FAA spokesman Greg Martin told CNN

JetBlue said it is experiencing delays following a problem with AeroData.
