However, service at the E7 ticket counter in Terminal E, where the bag was found, was diverted to a downstairs counter until airport officials gave an all clear, said Cynthia Vega, the spokeswoman.
A worker found the bag around 1:30 p.m. and normal service resumed at the E7 ticket counter about an hour later, Vega said. A road outside the terminal also was briefly closed, Vega said.
Officials did not know what the white powder was, but they were confident that it was harmless, Vega said.
