Alaska Airlines flights had been grounded earlier due to an issue during a system upgrade.

A ground stop that earlier paused Alaska Airlines’ flights has been lifted.

“This morning we experienced an issue while performing an upgrade to the system that calculates our weight and balance. Out of an abundance of caution, we requested a ground stop for all Alaska and Horizon flights, which was instituted at approximately 7:30am PT. The issue was mitigated and the ground stop for Alaska and Horizon flights expired at 8:30am PT,” the airline said in a statement to CNN.
