Power is being restored at LaGuardia Airport’s Terminal C after an early morning power outage Friday stranded hundreds of passengers.
Delta reported 119 fight cancellations as of 10:30 a.m, the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey said. The FAA reported delays of over two hours, the Port Authority said.
Construction workers accidentally cut the feeder cables to Terminal C, which affected the passenger loading bridges. The power outage started around 4:30 a.m., and jet bridges were working again by 8:30 a.m., the Port Authority said. Delta’s communication system was restored by 10 a.m., and flights were restored around then.
“Aaand, 2 hour delay. Not all flights, just mine. Evidently, we need power to take the stairs to the board. #delta #drivingwasfaster,” tweeted Jessica Roadhouse.
US Airways, which also operates out of Terminal C did not lose power.
