Thousands of flights cancelled due to weather

Bradley Airport says operations will resume Friday

The nasty winter storm taking over the Northeast led to dozens of flights being canceled at South Florida airports Thursday.

The flights affected are BW015 and BW014.

The National Weather Service was forecasting record low temperatures for 28 major cities in the mid-Atlantic states, NY and across New England by early Sunday.

It says full refunds will be allowed on tickets issued for travel to or from NY between January 4 and 6. In addition, multiple airports across the east coast are closed until at least this afternoon including, JFK (New York), MMU (Morristown, New Jersey), and SAV (Savannah/Hilton Head).

New York's LaGuardia airport expected to cancel 90% of its schedule. The flight-tracking site FlightAware reported almost 4,800 canceled flights across the United States. "Travelers are urged to contact their airline carriers for updates on resumption of service", the airport tweeted.

Several airports on the East coast have been shut down due to the powerful storm.

As of noon Thursday, 23 departing flights were cancelled, with destinations including Halifax, Moncton, New York, Newark and Boston.

The storm has prompted thousands of canceled flights along the eastern seaboard.

"The resumption of airport operations will be dependent on weather conditions at the airport, public transit and roadways", the airline said in a statement. Airport officials were constantly updating flight statuses to and from destinations across the United States.

Most airlines have been letting customers change reservations without incurring a fee, usually up to $200 on USA flights.

"We got here really, really early because of the snow", said Ruth Olson of New Haven. Additional cancellations are possible as the storm moves north.
