Flooding at JFK airport adds to misery after flight delays

12 January 2018

The terminal operator tweeted a statement from Shawn Makinen, Vice President of Facilities for JFKIAT at 2 p.m. local time saying, "As a result of a water main break at JFK Terminal 4, which caused flooding in the Arrivals Hall, inbound worldwide flights are now suspended".

Terminal 4 is a major gateway for worldwide arrivals at JFK and serves as an global hub for Delta Airlines, according to the Port Authority of NY and New Jersey.

The water leak flooded a baggage claim area of Terminal 4, dousing suitcases piled up by stranded travelers.

Travelers faced more flights delays and diversions at the John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York Monday as freezing weather strained operations.

Several passengers were stranded for hours at New York's JFK Airport reportedly as an effect of the "bomb cyclone" leading to halting of airplanes at the runways, earlier in the day on Saturday. While the water main break appeared to be weather-related, Cotton said officials would examine whether "any other failures" contributed to the problem.

The burst pipe caused 3 inches of water to flood the arrivals area of Terminal 4, which services Delta and 30 worldwide airlines, before it cascaded onto the roadway, where it froze, Cotton said.

The incident shut down arrivals and Customs and Border Patrols for more than four hours; electricity to the entire terminal was switched off to prevent short circuiting the building. Global departures are still in operation, but with delays.

Yesterday's cancellations added to the misery of travelers after a winter storm canceled or delayed hundreds of flights in recent days. The incident also forced the suspension of worldwide arrivals at the terminal. Andrea Collavo and his girlfriend were supposed to fly home to Italy on Friday after a vacation in the US, but flight cancellations and delays meant they were still trying to get into the air days later.
