Delays, cancellations for flights
Airline delays and cancellations continue to impact flights at Dulles International and Reagan National airports, reports the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority, which operates Dulles and National. In addition, dozens of flights traveling to or from Baltimore-Washington International Marshall Airport were delayed.
Delays and cancellations at Dulles and National will continue through the morning, MWAA warned, so travelers should be sure to check in with airlines before heading out. The agency said its snow removal teams were out at both airports through the night to treat and clear runways.
Inbound flights to National were being held at their point of origin until 10 a.m., my colleague Ashley Halsey III reports. There also were delays building at major airports with flights headed to the Washington region’s three major airports. Airports in Chicago, New York, Charlotte and Atlanta were all experiencing delays.
FlightAware says that as of 9 a.m., 40 flights originating at National were canceled, as were 54 flights bound for that airport. There were also 26 flights from Dulles canceled and 39 flights heading to Dulles canceled, according to FlightAware. The numbers were lower for BWI, with 17 flights from the airport and four flights heading there canceled.
