Computer glitch delays Frontier Airlines flights at DIA; spokeswoman says problem fixed

Delays now 30-45 minutes

DENVER - A computer problem delayed 20 Frontier Airlines departing flights at Denver International Airport on Thursday night.  

Frontier spokeswoman Tyra Squires told 7NEWS just before 9 p.m. that a computer issue at the airline's flight dispatch center created the delays.

However, Squires said problem had been resolved and flights were taking off, with delays ranging from 30 to 45 minutes. The glitch impacted DIA departing flights only and was not a nationwide problem, she added.

Passengers took to Twitter to complain about delays or "grounding" of Frontier planes at DIA.


Frontier flight attendant Kelly Decker posted a Facebook photo of jetliners lining up to take off with the message: "Power outage fixed! Lines of planes taking off! Looks like were heading to Orlando after all!"
