Snowstorm causes flight cancellations

A fierce winter storm in the US has grounded several scheduled flights to the island and delayed others.

According to Aaron Adderley, general manager at LF Wade International Airport, the storm has impacted traffic out of both New York and Boston.

“JetBlue, Delta and American Airlines' midday flights to and from JFK have been cancelled, whilst Delta's flight from Boston arrived slightly delayed, at 1.43pm.

“The departure time for the return flight to Boston has been pushed back to 5.50pm this evening. Delta's service to and from Atlanta is operating as per scheduled.”

As of this afternoon, New York was preparing for as much as a foot of snow, while as much as 18 inches was expected in Boston.

Around 70 per cent of flights out of New York's LaGuardia Airport were cancelled today, along with half of the flights set to depart JFK.

Meanwhile, more than 350 flights out of Boston were grounded over the course of the day.
