SEATTLE (KTUU) - On Tuesday, Seattle-Tacoma International Airport travelers can expect delays, due to "low ceilings and a temporary Air Traffic Control equipment outage," according to Alaska Airlines.

According to the airline, approximately 90 Alaska Airlines and Virgin America noon flights have been delayed upwards of two hours; consequently, about 10,000 travelers have been impacted, thus far.

While operations are being restored, the airline urges travelers to check the status of their flights, before heading to Sea-Tac, today.

"Guests traveling through Seattle today should check the status of their flights before they leave for the airport," said Todd Sproul, managing director of system operations control for Alaska Airlines. "In the meantime, we’re working with the Port of Seattle and the FAA to restore normal operations as soon as possible."
