Computer issues causing customs delays at McCarran and other airports


An outage in U.S. Customs and Border Protection computer systems results in delays at U.S. airports, including Las Vegas.

Customs and border protection at McCarran International Airport have reported that they are experiencing system issues, but are implementing alternate procedures to maintain passenger processing, according to Christine Crews, airport spokesperson. .

The customs slowdown does not affect flights as it only affects passengers arriving in the United States.

“CBP processes arriving passengers and their baggage,” Crews said. “A slowdown in the port of entry will have no impact on flight operations.”

Crews had not estimated the wait times these inbound passengers face at McCarran.

Several major airports, including John F. Kennedy Airport in New York, LAX in Los Angeles, and Dallas-Forth Worth Airport in Texas, were among the other major airports that tweeted that they were experiencing similar computer system issues. .

CBP said via Twitter on Friday that it was experiencing a temporary outage in its processing systems and was working to resolve the issue.
