Flights back to normal after Sacramento Int’l Airport outage

Flights are back to normal Wednesday at Sacramento International Airport after a system-wide computer outage left hundreds of passengers stranded.

There were still some slight delays in flights, as of 10:45 a.m., due to the hours-long computer outage at the airport.

People are advised to check with their airline ahead of time to see what delays there may be.

Airport workers were unable to check bags for passengers, and people were not being allowed on most flights out of Sacramento International Airport for several hours. The first problems at the airport were reported to KCRA at 4:30 a.m.

Southwest Airlines was never affected by the computer outage. Inbound flights were also arriving as scheduled, despite the issue.

Even though many flights are back running as usual, people are still advised to print boarding passes at home.

The computer system was expected to be up and running by 7 a.m., but another glitch caused more problems, according to airport spokesperson Laurie Slothower.

There is no word on what caused the outage.

An FAA-required simulated emergency exercise is still going to happen as scheduled from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Click here for more information.
