A power outage is disrupting flights at the international terminal at John F. Kennedy Airport, the airport said Thursday.
The New York airport reported a “power outage at Terminal 1,” which handles international flights. He said that “some flights may arrive and depart from different terminals.”
A source familiar with the situation said there was a fire overnight, which has since been extinguished, knocking out power to much of the terminal.
The aircraft ramp around Terminal 1 has been closed and is scheduled to reopen Friday morning, according to a notice posted to a Federal Aviation Administration security database.
The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, which manages the airport, did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
