International flights are coming into JFK Airport’s Terminal 4 after they were shut down earlier Sunday due to a water pipe break that has delayed flights all day.
At the time of this writing, the airport was experiencing departure and arrival delays of more than two hours.
Officials are urging travelers to check their airline for their flight’s status before coming to the airport.
International arrivals to Terminal 4 were suspended earlier, with passengers who were already arrived being taken to other terminals for processing. Departures were not impacted.
The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey said a water pipe that feeds the terminal’s sprinkler system broke around 2 p.m. That sent approximately three inches of water into the terminal’s west end.
