The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner reports there is a problem with one of the scanners used by Transportation Safety Administration agents to examine passengers’ carry-on bags.
Airport spokeswoman Angie Spear says airport security lines are the longer than normal because the scanner broke Wednesday evening. Flights affected are with Alaska, United, Delta and Frontier airlines.
Spear says the airport issued an alert because many people are comfortable arriving only an hour or an hour and a half before their flights from Fairbanks.
Spear says TSA personnel have ordered the necessary parts to fix the equipment. She says the airport hopes repairs will be made by Monday at the latest.
