Day said curbside check-in, ticketing and checkpoints are operating again, but travelers can expect delays on Southwest and Alaska airlines so they should check with those airlines for flight times.

Airport officials were alerted to the bag in Terminal B past the security checkpoint at about 10 a.m., Day said.

The threat prompted airport officials to move passengers in Terminal B to Terminal A.
