MOON TOWNSHIP, Pa. (KDKA) – Dozens of flights were canceled at Pittsburgh International Airport on Thursday ahead of this latest winter storm.
Bob Kerlik, a spokesman for the Allegheny County Airport Authority, said there were 268 flights arriving and departing Thursday, and 85 were cancelled. On top of that, several flights were canceled for Friday.
Kerlik said crews began applying chemicals to the runways and taxiways early Thursday morning and will continue throughout the night to reduce icing.
That hasn’t stopped airlines from canceling flights, leaving some passengers wondering when or whether they’ll arrive at their destination. Some passengers have had their flights canceled not once, but two or three times.
Jason Klein from New Hampshire said, “My flight here was canceled and then my flight was cancelled. And then I change it to a date and then it’s canceled again and then I change it again and then it’s canceled again. I’ve changed airlines now, so I’m going to the US so hopefully at 5:30 I’ll be out of here.”
