SAN JOSE, Calif. (KTVU) - Normal operations resumed this evening in Terminal A at Mineta San Jose International Airport following an evacuation of the terminal because checked baggage was brought into it, airport officials said.
Travelers numbering about 200 were asked to leave the terminal at about 4:15 p.m. so the terminal could be checked to be sure it's safe, airport spokeswoman Rosemary Barnes said.
Airport officials expected outbound traffic to be delayed up to two hours because of the situation. Inbound traffic was probably going to be delayed too, Barnes said.
Airport officials said passengers should check with their airline to see whether there are delays now.
In Terminal A are gates one to 16.
Passengers traveling on a number of airlines including Aeromexico, Air Canada, Air China, Alaska Airlines, American Airlines, All Nippon Airways, Delta Air Lines, Hawaiian Airlines, Jet Blue, United Airlines and Volaris were going to be affected.
Security personnel re-screened all passengers and their bags before letting them back into the terminal.
