TAPintoTravels - Whenever there is inclement weather, it pays to keep informed.  Today, (Thursday, March 22), the FAA is reporting a normal return to service with less than 15 minute delays.  LaGuardia has reported that 90% of scheduled flights are scheduled to takeoff.  Newark Liberty is reporting that 180 flights are canceled.

NJ Transit is reporting a return to weekday schedules.  The only suspension of service is between Philadelphia and Atlantic City.

Here is an updated list of school closures and delays.

Most Airlines now offer APP, text, or email updates to flight delays.  Make sure to sign up for them.  That will be your fastest way to get notifications. Also, make sure to check whether your airline is offering any waivers.

To keep informed on the status of the airports, you should sign up for their automatic notifications.  You can sign up for the area airports’ notifications at this link.

Always remember to be safe.  It is more dangerous going to an airport in these conditions, than flying.  We want you to keep traveling.

If you do it the old-fashioned way and check frequently for yourself, here are the links to major carriers:
