PHOENIX — Police say a terminal at the Phoenix airport has been re-opened after an unattended rental car left in a curb lane prompted a security scare.

The car was found early Sunday on the upper deck of Terminal 4.

Officials at Sky Harbor International Airport say some outbound flights were delayed. Carriers affected include American Airlines, Air Canada, British Airways and Southwest Airlines.

Airport officials encouraged travelers to confirm the status of flights with their carrier.
