Security Incidents At Newark Airport Causes Delays
2 security incidents at Newark Airport’s Terminal C have caused delays likely to last the rest of Sunday.
Screenings at Newark resumed shortly after 12noon but arriving flights are delayed by nearly an hour while thunderstorms are causing delays on flights at Newark, Kennedy, LaGuardia and Philadelphia.
The first incident involved an oversize piece of luggage that was not inspected properly around 6:30AM but was still loaded onto a United flight according to WABC TV. The bag was recovered by TSA and a bomb squad unit by 9:30AM.
A passenger who slipped through security without being properly screened caused a lockdown in the terminal.
