Flight cancellations, tips on flying in winter conditions

Flight cancellations, tips on flying in winter conditions

Because several East Coast airports were temporarily closed because of wind and whiteout conditions, including John F. Kennedy International Airport and La Guardia Airport, both in NY, travelers with connecting flights should check with their airline for the latest changes to flight information.

As Winter weather pounds New England, a number of flights have been affected.

Flights are expected to resume at JFK Friday at 7:00am local time.

It says full refunds will be allowed on tickets issued for travel to or from NY between January 4 and 6.

"The safety of our passengers, airlines and airport workers is our top priority as Charleston International Airport works to recover from the January 3, 2018, winter storm".

The massive winter storm moved up the East Coast Thursday, with weather watches and warnings stretching 1,000 miles from North Carolina to Maine.

Many passengers are finding that their flights have either been canceled or delayed. "Travelers are urged to contact their airline carriers for updates on resumption of service", the airport tweeted. As the storm began to wind down, the airport was continuing its focus on snow removal efforts.

The flight delays and cancellations started Wednesday but most travelers seemed to take it in stride and some chose to stay put, said Patricia Barquero, who was heading home to Littleton, Colo.

They were among more than 4,900 canceled flights across the United States, according to the FlightAware flight tracking site.

For more information on how to do that, head to Bradley International Airport's website here. The travel nightmare is also having an impact at BWI Airport, where a 10th grade class returning to Denver from a trip to Israel has been stranded for hours.

"There are a couple of people who are staying in Florida because it's too cold to go home", she said.
