More than 6,000 flights have been canceled nationwide, including some at Kansas City International Airport, as the Northeast part of the United States shuts down in advance of a large snowstorm.
The storm, which is expected to break records, has more than 35 million people in its path in the Philadelphia-to-Boston corridor.
Six flights from Kansas City to the Northeast on Monday had been canceled, including Delta Flight 5478 to New York, which was originally scheduled to depart at 6:30 a.m.; United Flight 4553 to Newark, which was originally scheduled to depart at 10:09 a.m.; and Southwest Flight 325 to Boston, which was scheduled to depart at 7:50 p.m.
Several flights from the Northeast to KCI also had been canceled.
There were already three flight cancellations for Tuesday from KCI — 6:30 a.m. and 2:33 p.m. Delta flights to New York and a 6:59 a.m. US Airways flight to Philadelphia/Providence.
A spokesman at Manchester-Boston Regional Airport in New Hampshire says all flights probably will be canceled Tuesday — the first time the airport would close in 25 years.
Kansas City International Airport announced that most airlines are waiving rebook fees because of the blizzard.
