Northeastern snowstorm scrubs 17 flights to, from TIA

TAMPA — Seventeen flights in and out of Tampa were canceled Thursday as airports braced for another big northeastern snow storm.

The cancellations affected mostly afternoon and evening flights to and from New York, though flights to Newark and Philadelphia also were hampered by the weather, said Christine Osborn, a spokeswoman for Tampa International Airport.

As of 9:30 a.m., the canceled flights to and from TIA were as follows: American Airlines had two; Continental Airlines had four; Delta Airlines had three; Southwest Airlines had five; US Airways had two; and JetBlue had one. Nine were arrivals and eight were departures.

AirTran had two delayed flights.

Some flights to Baltimore; Detroit; Memphis, Tenn.; Columbus, Ohio; and Providence, R.I. were also disrupted.

Osborn said it's too early to say if the airlines would cancel additional flights. "I'm sure it's very likely," she said.
