Flights to Phoenix Sky Harbor Intl (PHX) are being delayed at their departure airport for approximately 40 minutes because construction at the airport is causing aircraft on the ground to take longer than usual to move between the gate and the runway.
This post is updated every 15 minutes. All times are listed in local time for the airport.
Will my flight be impacted?
Probability your flight will be impacted based on how far in the future it is scheduled to leave:
|60 Minutes||Three Hours||Six Hours|
Construction is expected to continue to cause minor delays, but this is something which airlines know is happening and have included in their planning. As such while your flight may see a minor delay it is not likely to be canceled unless there are other issues for that specific flight.
