Computers Coming Back Online at McCarran Airport

Posted: Updated:

LAS VEGAS -- Officials at McCarran International Airport in Las Vegas say they're working to fix a downed passenger processing system that is recovering but not yet fully functional.

Airport spokesman Chris Jones says the computer system went down sometime around 8:30 a.m. Thursday, but is expected to be back up and running at about 11 a.m.

In the meantime, airline companies are manually checking in passengers, and long lines are forming at airline counters. Jones says it's not clear whether passengers will miss flights or whether airlines will hold the planes.

He says the glitch doesn't appear to be affecting inbound passengers.

Information from the Associated Press was used in this report.
