LAS VEGAS (AP) — Officials at McCarran International Airport in Las Vegas say they’re working to fix a downed passenger processing system.
Airport spokesman Chris Jones says the computer system went down sometime around 8 a.m. Thursday, but was partially running by a little after 10 a.m.
He says he doesn’t know the cause, and couldn’t provide an exact time for when the system would be fully restored.
In the meantime, some airline companies are manually checking in passengers. Jones says it’s up to individual airlines whether to place passengers on later flights or hold the planes.
He says the glitch doesn’t appear to be affecting inbound passengers.
