May 26, 2015

May 26 (Reuters) – A sinkhole has closed a runway at Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport, which may delay flights at one of the largest transit hubs in the United States.

The sinkhole was found in a safety area adjacent to one of the airport’s main runways, a spokesman wrote Tuesday on the airport’s Twitter page. The runway will stay closed until repairs are completed, according to the post.

About 4 percent of departures from DFW, or 40 flights, were delayed and another 13 canceled as of 10:05 a.m. local time, according to data from flight tracking website FlightAware.com.
