Tens of thousands of passengers are stranded at the  Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport in Atlanta after a power outage.

The outage caused more than 1,000 flights to be cancelled just days before the start of the Christmas travel rush.

Passengers were left in the dark when the lights suddenly went out around 1pm Sunday.

The blackout halted all outgoing flights, and arriving planes were held on the ground at their point of departure. International flights were being diverted, officials said.

Passengers inside the airport are lighting their way with their cell phones and people in wheelchairs are having to be carried down stairwells.

People have reportedly been stuck on planes for more than six hours.
