Saipan airport back to full operation following light outages

Power and lights have been restored to Saipan International Airport, allowing for full flight operations including nighttime flight operations.

A notice that only daytime flight operations were allowed was in effect from Nov. 28 to Dec. 7, but this was cancelled at 2.p.m local time on Wednesday.

A fire in the handhole close to Gate 4 of the airport led to the runway light outages on Nov. 28.
