PHOENIX — Two checkpoints at Terminal 4 of Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport will close starting Friday amid COVID-19 staffing issues.
Checkpoints B and D will be closed starting at 4 a.m. on Friday, "given the impacts of COVID on TSA personnel," according to a statement from the TSA.
Officials with the TSA say travelers should expect wait times up to 30 minutes at the remaining open checkpoints, A and C.
It is unclear when the checkpoints will reopen.
The announcement comes as airlines across the country continue to face staffing issues causing cancellations. As of 9 p.m. Thursday, 77 flights for the day to or from Sky Harbor had been canceled.
