US storm causes departure delays at airport
An island-wide blackout failed to slow business at the new airport, a spokeswoman said yesterday.
But bad winter weather off the US East Coast caused delays to some flights scheduled to leave the island.
The JetBlue flight was scheduled to leave for New York at 10.25am did not take off until 2.49pm.
An Air Canada flight to Toronto had a shorter delay and took off at 3.34pm rather than the scheduled 2.45pm departure.
The cause of the delays was a powerful winter storm that dumped more than three feet of snow on parts of the north east US since Thursday morning and cut power to almost 50,000 homes.
