By KARRYON @karryontravel05 Jan 2018Travellers scheduled to fly across the East Coast of the United States are being advised to continue checking flight schedules as cancellations and flight delays continue today. The advise comes as the US blizzard dubbed as the US ‘bomb cyclone’ swept across the East Coast overnight with 30 to 50 mph winds and 30cm of snow. Boston’s National Weather Service said on Twitter that the city’s coastline experienced “the worst flooding in recent history”, while in Massachusetts, state police urged locals to stay off the roads “if you don’t have to go”. #MAtraffic update: TT Unit is righted on I-90 WB at the 89.8 mm in #Auburn. Right lane and breakdown still closed. High winds, blowing #MAsnow ❄️ are making for limited visibility. #MAwx pic.twitter.com/3VXARtm1Gg — Mass State Police (@MassStatePolice) January 4, 2018 Earlier today, nice snapshot from the polar-oribiting MODIS satellites (https://t.co/2oHHCt0CmH); can clearly see the snow swath left by the storm extending as far S along the Carolina / Georgia coastline into N Florida pic.twitter.com/jVkzMOpSGv — NWS Boston (@NWSBoston) January 4, 2018 Airports such as New York’s JFK and LaGuardia as well as Georgia’s Savannah were forced to temporarily close their runways yesterday when they were frozen over with snow and ice. Both Savannah Airport and JFK Airport’s social media teams advised social media users that ice along the runway had melted, allowing the gateways to re-open this morning. Flight activity at #JFK is expected to resume later tonight. Please confirm flights details/status with your carrier before arriving at the airport. #Kennedy #Winterstorm #Grayson #Blizzard2018 pic.twitter.com/meTQ8ATOIG — Kennedy Airport (@JFKairport) January 4, 2018 flySAV is now open with both runways operational. Passengers should continue to check with the airlines for flight information and to confirm reservations, as they may still operate on a limited schedule. Some airport shops could be closed even when flights are operating. — SAV Airport (@fly_SAV) January 4, 2018 Despite the good news, travellers are being advised to continue expecting cancellations and delays as airlines attempt to reschedule guests and catch up on services cancelled all-day Thursday. Among the airlines is Delta, which is expected to cancel another 200 flights today. This is in addition to the 750 services cancelled yesterday. Delta has 200 mainline & Delta Connection cancellations scheduled for Friday as we operate a reduced schedule at both NYC airports to reset the operation. Customers with flights departing the affected area should check https://t.co/lVlOjYwO0A for the status of their flight. — Delta (@Delta) January 4, 2018 JetBlue told its passengers that its “BlueCities” will also continue to be affected throughout the day, after the carrier cancelled around 800 flights on Thursday. Winter Storm #Grayson is impacting many of our BlueCities.
