LONG ISLAND CITY, N.Y., Jan. 14 (UPI) -- A network outage at JetBlue Airways on Thursday caused flight delays and cancellations at airports across the nation, the carrier said.

According to the airline, its network began experiencing problems with its online services and mobile application. Travelers at various U.S. airports on the East and West Coast also reported trouble checking in and printing boarding passes.

LaGuardia and JFK International Airport in New York, JetBlue's primary operating base, Boston's Logan International Airport, a major JetBlue hub, and Los Angeles International Airport were among the airports affected. Flights at airports in Long Beach, Calif., another JetBlue hub, and Orlando were also interrupted.

JetBlue later said on its website flight booking and check-ins had been restored and pointed to a power outage at one of its data centers.

"Customers traveling today will receive updates from airport crew members," the carrier wrote in a blog post. "Flights are still departing at this time but customers traveling may experience delays or cancellations. Customers traveling today should speak to an airport crew member for an update on their flight. We apologize for the inconvenience."
