Power restored at Atlanta airport, outage impacted flights at BWI

Power restored at Atlanta airport, outage impacted flights at BWI

It's a far cry from April, when a massive thunderstorm outbreak grounded Atlanta flights for most of one day. At least ten flights were listed as canceled Monday morning.

Georgia Power had announced at 6:30 p.m. that it expected to have power restored to the Atlanta Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport by midnight Sunday, according to a tweet from the City of Atlanta. Many passengers were forced to sleep at the airport as officials worked to resolve the power issues.

Meanwhile, Delta Airlines has canceled 300 flights Monday and was offering its customers traveling Sunday and Monday the opportunity to make a one-time change to their travel plans without penalty.

Inside the airport, the outage cut power in the terminals, leaving passengers stranded in the dark as they stood in line at gates and security checkpoints. Green said the pilot told passengers that other flights that had ran out of fuel were evacuated before theirs. She shot this image at 1:10 p.m. ET. They spent Sunday night on a carpeted floor outside an elevator and hoped to get standby status on a Monday afternoon flight.

Georgia Power has confirmed they have crews in the field working to determine the cause of the problem. "We then got Concourse F up and running".

Airport operations were resuming Monday morning in Atlanta, a day after a crippling power outage left thousands stranded.

Travelers headed to Boston's Logan Airport are being urged to check their flights after a power outage in Atlanta caused significant delays and cancellations across the country. Both of those flights were set to travel to Atlanta.

Poroshenko rewarded Saakashvili for his efforts by appointing him governor of the important Black Sea region of Odessa in 2015. A statement posted on his official Facebook page called for a protest at the detention center.


Back in Atlanta, Delta is said to be the hardest hit with its biggest hub operation located at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta. The utility said that there are "many redundant systems in place" to ensure the power supply to the airport and that such outages at the airport "are very rare".

It is not known how many flights may be affected.

There are reports from people at the airport that flights are delayed and inbound flights can not deplane due to lack of power in the jetways.

That wasn't enough to comfort Jeff Smith, 46, of Pittsburgh, who ended up stuck in a plane on the tarmac for three hours after it landed.

Sara Melillo, who was traveling to Pittsburgh from Kenya, where she lives with her husband, Greg Presto, to spend Christmas with his family were stuck on the tarmac for six hours.

At Southwest Airlines, about 70 Atlanta departures out of 120 scheduled for Sunday were cancelled, an airline spokesman said in an email.

The power outage has had a major impact at Raleigh-Durham International Airport as well - and not just for people flying to Atlanta. On average, 275,000 passengers pass through the airport each day.
