Some Charleston-area air travelers found their flights grounded or delayed Friday as a result of a fierce Northeastern blizzard.
Six flights at Charleston International Airport were canceled 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 Friday into today, CNN reported.
More than 60 U.S. airports reported flight cancellations, Flight Aware said.
