MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (CNN/WMBF) - Spirit Airlines said it experienced “technical issues” Thursday morning.

On social media, the airline said its website, app and airport kiosks were down.


The issues resulted in delays and long customer lines at airports.

Myrtle Beach International Airport’s flight tracker shows there are over 20 Spirit Airlines flights that have been delayed. Across the country, over 330 Spirit flights have been delayed.

Spirit apologized but initially did not have a time frame for when the issue would be fixed. Thursday afternoon, Spirit sent WMBF News the statement below:

“We have resolved a network issue between third party services that affected our website, mobile app and some internal applications. We apologize for any delays and inconvenience, and we’re now working our way back to normal operations.”

Passengers flying Spirit on Thursday have two options - wait it out at the airport or request a refund and fly later.
