WINDSOR LOCKS, CT (WFSB) -

Passengers on six flights trying to leave Bradley International Airport were delayed on Wednesday afternoon because of a fuel shortage, airport authorities said.

Bradley officials said fuel was suspended around 4 p.m.

They were supposed to get a delivery around 1 p.m. from New Haven, which is where airport authorities their fuel is kept.

There was a pump problem in New Haven, which caused the delay and left some passengers stranded on the runaway.

The issue was fixed around 4:45 p.m.
