Chaos as power outage grounds flights at world's busiest airport

Sunday, December 17, 2017 | Tag Cloud Tags: , ,

(Worthy News) - Hundreds of flights were delayed or canceled at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport on Sunday as a power outage left passengers at the world's busiest airport stranded in darkened terminals or in aircraft idling on tarmacs.

The partial shutdown at the start of one of the busiest travel weeks of the year forced the Federal Aviation Administration to ground flights bound for Atlanta. Departures from Atlanta were delayed as well because gates and other equipment inside terminals were inoperative, the agency said.

The FAA flight control tower was operating normally, but at least three major airlines - United Air Lines, American Airlines and Southwest Airlines - suspended operations at the airport for the rest of the day. [ Source: UK Telegraph (Read More...) ]
