Aproblem in an electrical substation at Reagan National Airport knocked out power to terminals B and C for more than two hours Thursday.

The outage began about 11:45 a.m. and power was restored to the terminals about 2 p.m., said Courtney Mickalonis, a spokeswoman for the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority. The agency’s headquarters building, which is separate from the terminals, was without power for more than five hours. Arlene Salac, a spokeswoman for the Federal Aviation Administration, said the outage did not affect air traffic operations.
