A problem with the Portland International Airport's in-ground fuel system caused a number of flight delays Friday morning.
Airport officials said it was a widespread problem affecting several airlines.
Many flights continued to operate on schedule because they didn't need fuel or received the fuel via a truck, but several others were delayed.
At least eight Southwest Airlines flights were listed as delayed. The flights were in gates C13, C14 and C15 and had final destinations of Dallas, Baltimore, Burbank, San Diego, Greenville, San Antonio, Phoenix and Milwaukee.
The Portland Airport's website also listed Spirit, Delta, American Airlines, Alaska Airlines and United as having delayed flights.
By 11:10 a.m., crews had repaired the fuel supply system, but Portland International Airport spokesman Steve Johnson said passengers should still play it safe.
"Passengers should still check with their airlines on flight schedules throughout the day to see if their flights are delayed, as regular schedules will restore gradually," he said in a statement.
