DENVER – Computer issues caused nationwide delays for United Airlines flights Wednesday, including several at Denver International Airport.

The airline says a software program used to create flight plans went down and has led to the delays. Issues have been ongoing since around 8 a.m. Mountain Time, the airline said, however they appeared to be resolved just after noon. 

Many of the major airports across the country, including DIA and airports in Los Angeles, Chicago, Washington and San Francisco, experienced delays, and the ripple effect is likely to be seen the rest of the day.

As of 11 a.m., no cancelations were reported in Denver.
