Thousands of flights in the U.S. have been canceled due to the winter storm sweeping across the east coast. Airports in the New York City area and Boston have been especially hard-hit with more than two-thirds of flights in and out being canceled, the Associated Press is reporting.
Flightaware is tracking more than 3,200 canceled flights within, into or out of the U.S.
Many travelers say it’s best to plan ahead if you’ll be flying, and most airlines are offering travel waivers for today and Friday. Albany International Airport is the closest airport where passengers can get the waiver.
The storm has also caused Amtrak to modify its scheduled routes, so be sure to check the Amtrack website before traveling to ensure that trains are operating on time.
The route between NYC and Boston has been modified for today, and service from Washington D.C. to Newport News, Virginia has been canceled.
Amtrak is advising travelers to allow for extra time to get to the train station, and be extremely careful inside stations and on platforms.
