Wondering if your flight is canceled due to the snow and ice storm in the South? Flight Aware is reporting that 2,453 flights will be cancelled on Wednesday, Feb. 12, 2014. That number is expected to rise as Winter Storm Pax intensifies.
If you are flying in or out of an airport anywhere across the South, Middle Atlantic or Northeast this week, it is important that you check in with your airline for the latest updates on flight cancelations and delays.
More than half of the cancellations involve flights coming to or leaving from Atlanta. Hundreds of flights are also canceled in Charlotte, Raleigh-Durham and Washington, DC, with more cancelations to come over the next 24 hours.
If you have flight plans on Delta, Air Tran, US Airways, American Airlines, Jet Blue or Southwest Airlines, your flight may be canceled on Wednesday. At the very least, travelers can expect long delays.
AccuWeather.com states, "poor travel conditions for the South will intensify Tuesday night into Wednesday before the storm starts to push up to the Northeast."
