  • The outage caused long lines in a number of airports as travelers waited for passport processing

A customs computer outage at JFK airport created delays for passengers arriving on global flights Monday.

At approximately 7 p.m., CBP said via Twitter that airport systems were back online after a temporary outage of the security's processing systems.

Other airports were also affected by the Monday outage which was eventually resolved at about 9:.30 p.m. EST (02.30 GMT), the Guardian reported.

The disruption was not thought to be "malicious in nature", CBP said.
