Major equipment problems are again gripping the Jamaica Civil Aviation Authority.

Nationwide News understands that flights into the Norman Manley International Airport were delayed this morning due to problems with equipment being used by air traffic controllers.

Our sources say one of the delayed flights was American Airlines 1589.

The flight was to land in Kingston at 11am, but its arrival was postponed indefinitely.

Flight crew were reportedly informed that the delay was due to equipment problems.
