Runway light problems cause delays at Plattsburgh Airport


Allegiant and Spirit fly jets that hold more than 200 passengers, while Pen Air uses 30-passenger Saab aircraft.


Once the lights at the south end of the runway were fixed, a new problem cropped up on the north end on Tuesday. But crews were able to fix that in time for a Spirit Air flight to arrive Tuesday night.

Kreig said there were complaints from passengers regarding the flight delays.

"I understand their frustration, and we apologize for that, but we were out there doing everything we could to solve the problem as quick as possible," he said.

"It's just been a very tough winter and has been more troublesome for airports than usual."
