Chicago Air Services Return To Normal

Full air traffic operations over Chicago have been successfully restored following a radar centre arson attack on September 26.

Located in Aurora, Colorado, the centre’s control tower covers both of Chicago’s primary gateways, Midway and O’Hare – recently named the busiest airport in the world. A statement from the FAA noted that during the outage, the agency successfully maintained high traffic volumes to and from both airports.

FAA technical teams have reportedly now restored all of the centre’s critical systems and equipment, and air traffic controllers resumed control of the centre’s airspace from adjoining centres yesterday morning.
