Some Charleston-area air travelers found their flights grounded or delayed today as a result of a firece Northeastern blizzard.

Six flights at Charleston International Airport were cancelled and a few were slowed because of the storm, said Becky Beaman, airport spokeswoman.

The flights were bound for LaGuardia, JFK or Newark airports, she said.

“The airlines are rebooking people on flights that will go out tomorrow morning. We will get the passengers on their way as quickly as they can,” she said.

Beaman said people affected by the cancellations should check with the airlines for the latest information.

Nationwide, nearly 3,300 flights were canceled in anticipation of the storm as emergency crews geared up for inclement weather, most of which was expected late today into Saturday, CNN reported.

According to the flight-tracking website Flight Aware, airports from Logan in Boston to O’Hare in Chicago to Reagan National in Washington were seeing significant number of flights — inbound and outbound — called off for Friday. More than 60 U.S. airports reported flight cancellations, Flight Aware said.
