(FOX NEWS) – A complete power outage at the nation’s busiest airport, the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, grounded flights Sunday afternoon, threatening to cause a holiday travel nightmare for fliers across the country just over a week before Christmas.

Georgia Power said that repairs are “well underway” at the airport and power is expected to be restored around midnight on Sunday, and the airport tweeted that “Power on Concourse F is back ON!”

Airport officials said in a news release the power outage has forced the Federal Aviation Administration to suspend outgoing flights and implement a “ground stop” for incoming flights, which “means that flights headed to Atlanta are held on the ground at their departure airport.”
