SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) - The Sacramento International Airport is experiencing an internet outage that will likely cause delays in flights to all those traveling out of town for one of the busiest holiday travel weekends of the year.
A spokeswoman for the Sacramento airport says that AT&T is experiencing outages in Sacramento after a car crash took out a utility pole. It wasn't immediately known when the internet will return.
Travelers and their bags must be checked in manually. While almost all its airlines are affected, the airport's largest carrier, Southwest Airlines, is experiencing the most delays. Arriving flights are not affected.
