Local Flights Canceled Due to Chicago FAA Facility Fire

Multiple flights at San Diego’s Lindbergh Field were canceled Friday morning due to a fire at a Federal Aviation Administration facility in suburban Chicago that snarled approximately 850 flights in and out of
O’Hare and Midway international airports.

At the San Diego International Airport, various flights in and out of Chicago were canceled or delayed, including flights with American Airlines, Southwest and at least one with United.

The fire in Chicago – which authorities believe may have been intentionally set by a contract employee – snarled plans for travelers not just in San Diego, but across the country, as O’Hare is the world’s busiest airport.
