DALLAS – Southwest Airlines are experiencing technical issues with their systems Wednesday causing all flights to be delayed.

It is unclear what is affected, but the Southwest Airlines website is currently down.

The company said on Twitter they are aware of the issue and investigating.

Southwest Airlines release the following statement:

"Southwest Airlines began experiencing intermittent performance issues earlier this afternoon with multiple technology systems as a result of an outage. We are now managing flight delays across our system, with a temporary ground stop in place for those flights that have not left the gate. We apologize to our Customers whose travel plans are impacted. We have a Team of experts working diligently to resolve the technical issues and their efforts have systems gradually coming back online. We expect to continue our move toward a normal operation but believe it will take time."
