A terminal in New York City’s John F. Kennedy International Airport will remain closed on Friday due to electrical issues, affecting inbound and outbound flights, the airport said in a tweet, disrupting activity at one of the world’s busiest airports.

“Travelers should check with their carriers for flight status before coming to the airport,” JFK said. The Port Authority is continuing to work with the terminal’s operator to restore flight operations as quickly as possible, it added.
