Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport is working to get back to normal operations Monday morning after an outage that lasted nearly 11 hours Sunday and crippled air travel at the nation’s busiest airport. Power was restored just after midnight.
The outage caused by a fire that damaged electrical equipment brought the airport to a standstill Sunday. Hundreds of flights were canceled, and the travel slowdowns continued early Monday as the airlines slowly went back to normal operations.
Thousands arrived at Atlanta’s airport before sunrise Monday to find incredibly long lines. Many passengers were forced to sleep at the airport as officials worked to resolve the issues.
