JAMAICA, Queens — Service has been restored after a server crash in a bustling JFK Airport terminal created a large delay on one of the busiest travel days of the year.
A spokesperson from Port Authority said the Verizon Wireless server crashed around 4 p.m. Sunday in the British Airways terminal of the airport. It was restored early Monday morning. Travelers were being manually checked into the airport overnight.
As of 6 a.m. Monday, no delays were reported.
Airport officials say they expect all of the passengers will make it onto their flights.
Port Authority police are assisting with crowd control at the terminal. A spokesperson says the passengers have been “orderly and understanding.”
Inbound flights are being redirected to other terminals.
