MIAMI (AP)

Miami International Airport officials say they will reopen a terminal Monday that was closed for parts of the weekend because of a staff shortage caused by the partial government shutdown.

Airport spokesman Greg Chin told news outlets Sunday that Concourse G will be back in operation after it closed for parts of Saturday and Sunday. The airport did not have enough Transportation Security Administration agents to staff the security checkpoint.

Chin says on Monday the checkpoint will be fully staffed and that future adjustments will depend on the availability of TSA workers.

Many TSA employees have called out sick to protest having to work but not being paid because of the government shutdown.

Authorities say the Miami airport closure did not cause unduly long lines on Saturday.

TSA screening at Concourse G in Miami resumes normal operations
January 16, 2019

NASSAU, BAHAMAS

In a statement released yesterday, Bahamasair advised all passengers travelling to and from its Miami Station that the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) Screening Check Point at Concourse G has resumed normal operations, effective immediately.

However, Bahamasair still encourages its passengers travelling in either direction to ensure that they arrive at least three (3) hours prior to departure to ensure adequate time for processing with the authorities, until such time as all issues related to the partial US government shutdown are resolved.

Bahamamasair said it wanted to thank the travelling public for their continued support and patience as we strive to be the airline of choice connecting the islands of The Bahamas to the world.
