Response From Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport Officials

The Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport issued an announcement relaxing the travel fare rules for the impacted. They will continue monitoring the situation and assured their customers they are doing their best to solve the issue. And thanked the travelers for their patience. The officials recommend checking their flight status in intervals so as to not miss any important announcements. Further saying to do the same before coming to the Airport as there is no saying when the issue will be solved.

The Airport has not revealed the reason for the power outage. We don’t think it’s weather-related as there the weather was pleasant. We have to assume it’s an internal issue, an issue with the power grid of the airport. Truly glad it was only a partial outage. Losing an entire airport will be devastating to the country. Downright dangerous for those who are already in the air. As they will no longer be able to reach out to anyone in case of an emergency.
