As snow storms batter the Northeast, 45 flights already canceled at JIA

As snow storms batter the Northeast, 45 flights already canceled at JIA

Next update: by 5 p.m. ET.

These flights were canceled Tuesday: United Flights 3528 and 3671 to EWR in Newark. As of Monday afternoon, Southwest has scrapped 884 flights, and American Airlines has canceled 619.

Airport authorities also encouraged people heading to the airport to use mass transit, including the free Q70 bus from Jackson Heights.

Up to 20 inches of snow might fall in North Jersey, as up to 2 inches per hour could accumulate during the height of the storm on Tuesday morning. More than 635 flights were grounded before the end of Monday and more were likely as airlines tried to restart their operations.

The airline is making every effort to contact and re-accommodate customers on all cancelled flights.

Southwest Airlines, which carries more domestic passengers than any other airline, doesn't expect to operate any flights Tuesday at 14 airports stretching from Washington to Portland, Maine. Other airports with big cancellation figures include Newark Liberty International in New Jersey, with more than 1,000; LaGuardia and John F. Kennedy airports in NY, with more than 800 apiece; and Baltimore-Washington International, with about 500, according to FlightAware.

At Tampa International Airport, as of 8 p.m. Monday around 26 flights were canceled due to the nor'easter.

Bradley International Airport in Hartford, Conn., canceled all departures on Tuesday and warned passengers that further delays will most assuredly carry into Wednesday.

Spirit: Customers can rebook through March 16 or March 18, depending on the airport.

Other global airlines will also be affected (whether by strike or by the weather). "I can tell you what flights to ask for or grab them myself with the airline, and then when you get up there, they'll see it's already been done".

It was a similar story at Boston and Baltimore, where most of Tuesday's flights had already been canceled before the day even began.

Delta said "flights should return to relative normalcy Wednesday, pending facility evaluations and resumption of mass transit services in NY".

Cancellations were spilling into Wednesday, too.

Bradley International Airport is open and crews are continuing with clean up operations.
