Utility work leads to Sky Harbor outage, some power restored – Hub News Report

PHOENIX (AP) — Some operations have resumed at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport after maintenance work led to a power outage Monday, disrupting service at two terminals.

Airport spokesman Eric Everts said there was still no power in some parts of Terminal 4 including one major checkpoint.

According to Arizona Public Service officials, a crew was doing scheduled maintenance work around 8 a.m. when an electrical equipment failure occurred.

APS says one worker was hurt and was taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

The outage caused delayed flights for American and Southwest, two of the busiest airlines, at Terminal 4 and 3.

APS was able to restore power to Terminal 3 an hour later.

Everts says American and Southwest airlines are starting to allow flights to depart and land. Other flights that had to be diverted are now heading to Phoenix as planned.

Travelers who are flying Monday are urged check their flight status before they come.

Everts says it could take until mid-afternoon for all operations to be fully recovered.
