UPDATE 1-JetBlue flights to resume after temporary halt

ATLANTA, Feb 26 (Reuters) - U.S. carrier JetBlue Airways (JBLU.O) said on Friday that its flights would resume after it earlier voluntarily issued a systemwide temporary halt to operations because of an information-technology issue.

Spokeswoman Alison Croyle said flights were to restart by 3:45 p.m. Eastern time. They were halted about an hour earlier.

    She said she had no information on the number of flights that had been affected.

    She said JetBlue was operating on a lighter schedule on Friday because it had canceled about 80 flights due to snowy weather in the New York area.

    She said the carrier operates an average of about 600 daily flights. (Reporting by Karen Jacobs)
