It’s the U.S. Northeast’s Day to Cancel the Majority of Flights

Skift Take

Travelers on the U.S. east coast aren’t going anywhere today, and neither are the passengers who need to connect via its major hubs.

The majority of flights scheduled to leave Newark Liberty Airport have been canceled as a winter storm moves up the East Coast.

About half the in-bound flights there Thursday were also canceled, according to the flight-tracking website FlightAware.

The heavy snowstorm has also led to cancellations of about half of the flights to and from New York City’s LaGuardia Airport.

More planes were expected to depart and arrive from Kennedy Airport, where about one-fourth of the day’s routes were canceled by mid-morning Thursday.
