The flight-tracking site FlightAware reported nearly 5,000 canceled flights across the United States, including more than two-thirds of flights in and out of New York City and Boston airports.
Locally in Killeen, two flights were delayed Thursday for reasons other than weather, according to Hilary Shine, city director of communications.
Flights coming into and out of the Killeen-Fort Hood Regional Airport were listed as on time as of late Thursday, and all major airports in the state were functioning normally, according to FlightView data.
Because several East Coast airports were temporarily closed because of wind and whiteout conditions, including John F. Kennedy International Airport and La Guardia Airport, both in New York, travelers with connecting flights should check with their airline for the latest changes to flight information.
At Austin-Begstrom International Airport, for example, four inbound flights were canceled: United Airlines 1961 and Southwest Airlines 6237 from Newark, New Jersey; Southwest Airlines 6441 from Boston, Massachusetts; and American Airlines 2110 from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, according to FlightView data, and at least 13 departures were delayed or canceled.
At Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport, at least 79 departures were delayed or canceled. At Dallas Love Field, 11 arrivals and seven departures were delayed or canceled. At William P. Hobby Airport in Houston, 14 arrivals and nine departures were delayed or canceled. At George Bush Intercontinental Airport, also in Houston, 58 arrivals and 57 departures were delayed or canceled. At Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport in Georgia, 204 arrivals and 169 departures were delayed or canceled.
