CNN BREAKING NEWS

Ottowa Airport Still Running

Aired August 14, 2003 - 17:32   ET

THIS IS A RUSH TRANSCRIPT. THIS COPY MAY NOT BE IN ITS FINAL FORM AND MAY BE UPDATED.

KYRA PHILLIPS, CNN ANCHOR: With us now, Christa Kealy. She's joining us via the Ottawa Airport. Our Patty Davis was telling us about the airports JFK, Laguardia and Newark shut down in New York. Also in Toronto. What can you tell us Krista about the Ottawa airport.
CHRISTA KEALY, OTTOWA AIRPORT: Well, the Ottawa airport is still open. We're on generator power. So we do have electricity, and we're managing to get some flights in and out. Not necessarily on time and not necessarily all of them, but we're doing our best to get as many passengers through as we possibly can.

PHILLIPS: So , Christa, you work for the airport. I'm sorry, I thought you were possibly a traveling passenger. What's your position there at Ottowa Airport?

KEALY: I'm the director of communications and public affairs at the Ottowa Airport.

PHILLIPS: OK, there we go. All right, so all flights are coming in and out of there as planned, as scheduled.

KEALY: Not necessarily. There are flights that are destined to areas that are affected by the power outage, they are not going. However, we are receiving some flights in and we're expecting flights that have been diverted from the eastern seaboard to be arriving shortly.

PHILLIPS: All right, director of communications there, Christa Kealy at Ottawa Airport. A bit of good news, operations, despite the blackout via generators, things are running pretty much according to plan there at Ottawa Airport.
