Tram service at Orlando International Airport restored after power outage

Cause of power outage unknown

ORLANDO, Fla. – Tram service at Orlando International Airport has been restored after a power outage halted it for more than two hours Wednesday afternoon, airport officials said.

Airport officials said access to gates 30 through 59 was interrupted around 1 p.m. It was restored around 3:30 p.m.

Travelers were being detoured to gates 1 through 29, officials tweeted.

"Due to APM (automated people mover) interruption, we encourage you to allow extra time if flying through gates 1-59," the airport later tweeted.

Storms moved through Central Florida on Wednesday, but the cause of the outage is not known.

Tram outages have plagued the airport over the last couple of months, prompting OIA to officer $600 in compensation to passengers who missed flights.

Construction on a $90 million project to replace the automatic people mover systems that service gates 1 through 59 has caused the tram that operates between the main terminal and gates 30 through 59 to experience six outages since mid-April.
