San Diego fliers may have experienced airport lines and delays Monday evening due to U.S. Customs and Border Protection system outages at various airports across the country.
Several major airports experienced a "temporary outage with its processing systems" for about two hours, according to an agency spokeswoman.
"During the disruption, CBP had access to national security-related databases and all travelers were screened according to security standards", it added and also said that disruption did not appear to be of a malicious nature. It gave no explanation for the disruption and said travelers were processed using alternative procedures. Travelers experienced delays of up to two hours in the global arrivals area.
Worldwide travelers at multiple airports took to social media Monday evening express their displeasure after they faced delays and long lines during processing.
A few minutes later, another tweet said the customs processing issue was resolved. Seems like their system did completely go down.
A similar computer breakdown at United States airports happened a year ago.
