(Philadelphia) -- American Airlines says its computers are again working at Philadelphia International Airport and the airline has also lifted a ground stop that kept its flights from heading to the city for hours.

American spokeswoman Katie Cody says today's problems began when American's system did not return after the airport conducted a planned internet outage overnight.

The airline had to manually check in passengers and halted all flights heading to Philadelphia until the problem was fixed.

There is no word yet what caused the problem.
