By 5 p.m., all flights were shut down and will remained stopped until 10 a.m. Tuesday.

On Tuesday morning, flights will gradually ramp up again, the company said in a statement.

JetBlue detailed the shutdown on their company blog.

“We intend to be 100-percent operational by 3 p.m. (Tuesday). This plan allows for 17 hours of rest for our equipment and crew members and time to service aircrafts,” JetBlue said in a statement.

JetBlue flights have been severely delayed or canceled since Friday due to weather impacts on the East Coast and in the Midwest as well as new Federal Aviation Administration guidelines about how much rest pilots must now have.

JetBlue is asking travelers to check their flight status online due to heavy volume on their phone lines.
