Flights to Slowly Resume at NYC Airports

January 9, 2013 – (Louisville, KY): New York City airports are open and flights will slowly resume at New York-Kennedy (JFK) and New York-LaGuardia (LGA) this morning. Flights at Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR) will resume after 12:00 noon. The Port Authority New York-New Jersey, the bi-state agency which operates the three airports, is keeping the runways and taxiways clear of snow.

There are still transportation challenges in the greater NYC area and flight schedules will initially be limited. Weather Waivers still remain in place with airlines for today.

For transportation to and from New York-Kennedy (JFK), New York-LaGuardia (LGA), and Newark Liberty (EWR), GO Airlink NYC provides24/7 NYC Airport Transportation.

International routes combined with high frequency routes are expected to resume first, but much of it will come down to aircraft and crew positioning.

Airport Closures in Northeast

Nearly 2,000 flights have been cancelled today and the number is likely to increase.

The further east and north you travel, snow remains a problem. According to FAA data as of 9:45am, February 9, 2013, Long Island-Islip (ISP), Hartford-Bradley (BDL), and Boston-Logan International Airport (BOS) remain closed.

New York City received between 6 and 12 inches of snow while parts of Long Island, Connecticut, and Rhode Island received over two feet. 28 inches of snow have been recorded at Long-Island Islip. Boston-Logan received approximately 24 inches of snow, but snow continues to fall as high winds blow the snow around, limiting visibilities. The big dig has begun in Boston as other neighborhoods are buried under two feet of snow.

Several cars are still reported to be stranded on the Long Island Expressway as well as I-95 north of New York City. Some states and municipalities still have rules in place prohibiting automobiles from driving while many remain without power across the Northeast. The process of clearing the streets has been a slow process in the worst hit areas.

At this time, it is possible airports in the northeast, such as Boston, might open later today, but no commercial flights are expected until tomorrow at the earliest at Boston-Logan. High winds are likely through the rest of the day in Boston.

Airline weather waivers for Winter Storm Nemo are still in affect. If you are scheduled to fly, consult the website of your airline. If you need to make changes, it is suggested you do so online. Many airlines currently have wait times in excess of an hour to speak to an agent by phone.
