A check of flights arriving and departing from the Buffalo Niagara International Airport showed a rash of cancellations late Monday evening, but that was due to worsening conditions elsewhere, officials said.
“I just spoke to the airfield superintendent and our runways are fine, in totally good shape," NFTA spokesman C. Douglas Hartmayer said just before 8 p.m. "So we’re not experiencing any issues with either inbound or outbound conditions at our airport.”
Flights in and out of the Buffalo airport Tuesday were canceled for all major airlines, including JetBlue, United, and Southwest. Delta and American will have limited service. Check schedules before heading to the Airport, the NFTA Transit Police said.
The only exceptions were Delta flights to and from its hub in Atlanta, and American flights to and from its hub in Charlotte.
A major winter storm will hit the Mid-Atlantic and Northeastern corridor, starting tonight and lasting through Wednesday.
The Buffalo Niagara region will be among those areas affected, with more than a foot of snow expected in some places, forecasters say.
