An investigation has put travel on hold at Palm Beach International Airport, halting commercial planes on the runway and removing passengers from portions of the terminal.
"People are in a holding pattern," said Lisa de la Rionda, an airport spokeswoman, as she arrived to the airport at about 11:15 a.m.
She said she did not know the nature of what is being investigated.
"This is a precautionary measure," she said.
