The leak was reported in the main facility of the airport. Controllers operated from a secondary control tower during the leak.
JFK controllers are operating from a secondary control tower due to a minor water leak in the main facility. Operations at this facility, combined with area weather, require more spacing between aircraft. As such, the FAA is holding most flights destined for JFK from departing.— Kennedy Airport. Wear a Face Covering. (@JFKairport) July 3, 2021
The airport remains open, but travelers may experience residual delays.
Travelers are urged to contact their airline for specific status on their flight.
