WASHINGTON (AP) - Flight delays and cancellations are persisting after a technical failure at a flight control center, and one of the hardest hit airports is Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport.

According to flight statistics from FlightRadar24, 68 percent of arrivals at the Baltimore-Washington airport have been canceled. About 12 percent of arrivals have been delayed. When it comes to departing Baltimore, about half the flights have been canceled, and more than a quarter of departing flights have been delayed.

Baltimore-Washington airport spokesman Jonathan Dean says widespread delays and flight cancellations continue. He says a small number of flights were able to operate Saturday afternoon.

At Washington’s Reagan National Airport, half the flights have been delayed, and half were canceled.

The Federal Aviation Administration is continuing to try to resolve its technical problem.
