Mid-Atlantic snow storm cancels flights at Tampa International Airport

A powerful winter storm bearing down on mid-Atlantic states disrupted air travel from the Tampa Bay area Friday.

Airlines canceled 17 departing and arriving flights at Tampa International Airport from 12:30 p.m. today through Saturday morning, said spokeswoman Christine Osborn. Southwest Airlines scratched a dozen flights, including eight departures to Philadelphia and Baltimore and four arrivals from those cities.

United and US Airways canceled a total of five departures from Washington area airports and two arrivals from the area.

Travelers should check with their airline before leaving for the airport — even if they aren't flying into areas hit by the storm, said Osborn.

The blizzard will likely cause disruptions that will cascade through airline schedules into Saturday.
