Strong Winds, Heavy Snow Force More NYC Cancellations
Delta has canceled an additional 200 flights Thursday as heavy snow and strong winds have prompted the suspension of all airline operations at New York-JFK and New York-LaGuardia. Neither airport is expected to reopen until later this evening, pending the removal of snow and ice from runways, taxiways and ramp areas.
Customers flying to, from or through the affected areas are encouraged to check the most current flight status on Delta.com or the Fly Delta Mobile app. An updated travel waiver was issued earlier today.
Delta has 200 mainline and Delta Connection cancellations on the books for Friday due to the inclement weather in the Northeast and New England. A reduced schedule at both NYC airports is expected Friday as the airline works to reset its operations in the region.
Customers with flights departing from the New York area airports Friday are encouraged to check Delta.com for the status of their flight and plan travel to the airport accordingly due to challenging road conditions throughout the area. At LaGuardia, MTA’s Q70 LaGuardia Link bus from Roosevelt Avenue is complimentary Friday. Those driving to LaGuardia should consider using this alternate route when approaching the airport from an eastbound direction on Grand Central Parkway.
