Many Flights Cancelled after Miami Airport Fire

Saturday, 26 Mar 2011 06:03 PM

 

MIAMI (AP) — Dozens of flights out of Miami have been cancelled three days after a fire broke out at the airport.

Miami International Airport says 97 flights were cancelled Saturday and another 17 were delayed as a result of Wednesday's blaze.

The fire left the airport's fuel pump operation unusable. A glitch has kept a temporary pumping system from working, so planes have to be fueled using tanker trucks.

An airport spokesman says he hopes the pumping system will be running later Saturday. It could take up to four months to install a new, permanent system.

All told, hundreds of flights have been cancelled at the airport because of the fire.
