Jackson-Medgar Wiley Evers International Airport (JAN) experienced a power outage during the severe storms that swept through the region overnight. The power disruption impacted various airport operations, resulting in delays in scheduled flights.
As of 5:45 am, power has been fully restored at JAN; however, delays are still expected. The airport’s dedicated teams worked diligently to address the situation and promptly restored power to ensure the safety and convenience of our passengers.
Despite the restoration of power, the airport anticipates residual effects from the outage, leading to continued delays and potential disruptions to flight schedules throughout the day. We encourage all passengers to check the status of their flights with their respective airlines for the most up-to-date information. Passengers are advised to contact their airline directly, visit the airline’s website or visit www.iFlyJackson.com to verify the status of their flights.
We are committed to working closely with airlines and airport partners to minimize disruptions and ensure a smooth travel experience for all. Thank you for flying JAN, “Your Connection to the World.”
