LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - A winter storm hitting the midwest is causing flight
delays and cancelations in Louisville, Cincinnati and Lexington.
Most of the cancelations and delays are for flights headed to or coming from
Chicago. Trish Burke, spokesperson for Louisville International Airport said
all Southwest, United and American Airlines flights to and from Midway and O'
Hare airports were canceled.
"Really, anytime there's extreme weather in certain areas, the airlines
have just decided it makes sense to keep both the passengers and the aircraft
out of harms way and just cancel the flight," said Burke.
Earlier Tuesday night, Cincinnati had grounded nearly 40 flights.
Louisville International Airport also was seeing some delays and cancelations
from Minneapolis, but travelers from Chicago easily had the biggest headache,
trying to figure out what's coming next for them. They say they are
used to it. "Bad weather, school is canceled, but that's
Chicago," said Chicago traveler Brian Bennett.
Burke said it's always a good idea to check for flight delays and cancelations
at www.flylouisville.com. If you
need to rebook your flight she says, just call your airline directly.
