Airlines are already bracing for the effects of Winter Storm Jonas, and East Coast travelers are feeling the chill.
As of 5 p.m. ET Friday, 2,258 flights going into, out of and within the United States have been delayed. Another 3,008 had been canceled on Friday, and 3,617 more on Saturday, according to FlightAware.
Considering many of the nation’s largest airports lie in the danger zone of the Snowpocalypse (or Snowzilla, as some have dubbed the storm), it is not surprisingly that thousands of flights have been canceled in advance of the blizzard. Routes to and from Charlotte and Raleigh, North Carolina made up the bulk of Friday’s canceled flights, according to FlightAware’s misery map. Cancellations on Saturday were centered at airports in the Philadelphia, Washington D.C. and New York City areas.
By Sunday afternoon, the airlines hope to have resumed a full schedule.
If you’ve got plans to travel today or later this weekend, ask your airline for a waiver that will allow you to rebook onto a different flight. Find out what each airline is offering as part of it’s waiver with Money’s guide to rebooking.
