The Austin-Bergstrom International Airport reported a power outage early Wednesday morning, forcing the airport to ground all outgoing flights for several hours. FlightAware also said that all inbound flights were being held at their city of origin Wednesday.

The airport said before power was restored that officials were looking into the cause of the outage.

The airport said it experienced its second-busiest day ever on Friday, processing 34,611 passengers in a single day.

Transportation Security Administration officials said passenger traffic nationwide during the Labor Day Weekend exceeded 2019 levels. It was the first holiday weekend since the start of the pandemic that exceeded 2019 levels.
