AUSTIN, Texas — The ground stop at Austin-Bergstrom International Airport (AUS) from severe weather conditions Friday night has been lifted.
In a tweet from AUS, a ground stop was issued for all airplanes at the airport until 8:45 p.m. The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) told AUS that the directive was because of the severe weather the Central Texas region was experiencing on Nov. 4.
A ground stop is when all airplanes cannot fly due to severe weather conditions.
The airport tweeted an update regarding the original ground stop and extended it to 9:15 p.m., per the FAA.
As of 9:24 p.m., the ground stop had been lifted and flights were set to continue as normal.
Travelers were told to expect delays for both arriving and departing flights.
