JFK flight cancelled due to winter storm

The latest winter storm to hit the US East Coast has resulted in just one flight cancellation so far for LF Wade International Airport.

This morning's JetBlue flight from JFK was halted, according to airport manager Aaron Adderley. The airport's website indicates that all other flights are expected to arrive and depart as normal.

The bad weather has led to almost 2,300 flights being cancelled in the States today, according to the Associated Press, with more than 550 of them to and from New York.

The news agency said JetBlue scrapped 23 percent of its flights, according to flight tracking site FlightAware.com.

AP reports that the hardest hit cities apart from the Big Apple are Philadelphia, Baltimore and Washington DC, with all flights into and out of Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport halted. There are more than 30,000 flights in the United States on a typical day.
