Travelers planning to fly out of Bluegrass Airport on Tuesday to cities in the Northeast should check the status of their flights before leaving home. Several departures and arrivals already were canceled Monday before the storm even hit.
Airport spokeswoman Amy Caudill said at least three flights coming into Lexington or leaving Lexington for the Philadelphia area were canceled during the day Monday. Four — an arrival and three departures — were canceled Monday night. An arrival from New York's LaGuardia Airport was canceled as well as the flights to and from Philadelphia.
New York, Boston and other cities across the Northeast are girding for 2 to 3 feet of snow in what some expects are saying could be one of the worst storms in history. The snow began falling Monday.
Caudill urged air travelers to stay updated.
"Check with your airline's website to make sure your flight is still on time and on schedule," she said. "Sometimes in cases where weather is a concern, airlines will let you make a change in your itinerary. So check with your airline if that is something that is of interest to you."
