Due to a power failure, flights had to be cancelled at Kansas City International Airport this Tuesday.
The most affected was Terminal B, which is Southwest’s hub, and also home of Delta Air Lines and AirTran Airways. The airlines were forced to cancel or delay more than a dozen flights.
Joe McBride, Kansas City International spokesman said that intermittent power failures began Monday night, then commercial electric service to the terminal failed this morning. The cause hasn’t been determined.
“Aviation staff and (Kansas City Power & Light Co.) are on it, and hopefully we’ll get things going again,” he said.
Arrivals were also affected, with many flights waiting for the power issue to be resolved, in order to take off from their departing airports.
