LaGuardia Airport Travelers Encourages to Use New Taxi Group Ride Sharing App
Mar 17 2017
A late-season winter storm has forced the cancellation of almost 8,000 flights since Sunday, with Tuesday promising to be the worst travel day yet.
The powerful nor'easter grounded more than 5,000 flights in the region. Passengers can rebook their travel for Tuesday or Wednesday flights to March 16 or 17 for free. Other airports with big cancellation figures include Newark Liberty International in New Jersey, with more than 1,000; LaGuardia and John F. Kennedy airports in NY, with more than 800 apiece; and Baltimore-Washington International, with about 500, according to FlightAware.
So far, Delta Airlines has been one of the worst carriers hit, having cancelled more than 100 flights yesterday and another 800 today, while American Airlines also scratched around 500 services yesterday.
On Tuesday, number of flights cancelled in response to Storm Stella rose dramatically from the amount initially affected since Sunday.
If there's one thing Smorol's crews pride themselves on is never causing Hancock Airport to close because of conditions on the runways, and it nearly never does close due to their round-the-clock work.
All flights from Baltimore/Washington International, Philadelphia International and Boston Logan International are canceled.
It was a similar story at Boston and Baltimore, where most of Tuesday's flights had already been canceled before the day even began. The airline is planning to resume normal operations Wednesday morning.
Passenger traffic at the Tampa airport has been on an upward trajectory for more than five years in a row, and officials anticipate serving 19.5 million passengers this fiscal year, which would set a new record.
Crews happily take on anything the weather can throw at them to make sure the Hancock Airport remains open for business.
All big US airlines have waived change fees for customers ticketed to fly to airports in the storm's path.
SFO has experienced a total of 39 inbound delays, although many of those may be unrelated to the storm.
