All Customs Computers Briefly Down At Airports Nationwide

Customs kiosks at several airports nationwide are back up again after a malfunction that caused travelers major delays, CNBC reports.

For about 90 minutes on Wednesday evening, passengers at airports in Los Angeles, New York, Boston, Dallas-Forth Worth, Charlotte and Baltimore reported technical problems checking in to customs, The Associated Press reported.

"U.S. Customs and Border Protection experienced a temporary outage with its processing systems at air ports of entry in the United States and took immediate action to address the technology disruption," an agency spokesperson said via email. 

International travelers were processed using alternative procedures until service was restored. 

"There is no indication the service disruption was malicious in nature," the spokesperson said.
