More than 1,100 flights were canceled in the United States on Tuesday, and thousands more were delayed, as a winter storm with heavy snow, winds and coastal flooding moved northeast.
By 7 p.m. Miami time, 1,150 flights within, to or from the United States had been canceled, according to flight tracking site FlightAware. More than 4,700 flights suffered delays.
New York LaGuardia International Airport and Boston Logan International Airport had about 300 cancellations. Newark Liberty International Airport had nearly 150 cancellations as of 7 p.m. local time.
Boston Logan advised passengers to check with their airlines for flight status before traveling to the airport.
Newark Liberty International Airport also urged travelers to check with their airlines before heading to the airport and allow for additional travel time.
“A winter mix of snow and rain is expected in the NJ/NY metropolitan area. These conditions, and gusty winds, can cause hazardous travel conditions,” the Newark airport tweeted Tuesday.
Delta Air Lines issued a weather waiver in the Northeast for flights this Tuesday and Wednesday. American, United, Southwest, JetBlue and Spirit have also issued waivers that allow passengers to reschedule at no cost for a limited time.
