TIA cancels 15 flights in wake of Northeastern storm

TAMPA — Fifteen flights to or from Tampa International Airport on were canceled Friday morning.

It comes a day after 17 flights were scrubbed due to heavy winter storms in the Northeast.

TIA spokeswoman Brenda Geohagan said Thursday that those numbers weren't extreme, considering each day has about 500 flights coming and going from the airport. But that's probably not much comfort to those who have to adapt travel plans.

A Federal Aviation Administration Web site was listing an average delay of more than three hours for flights to Philadelphia International Airport shortly before 9 a.m. Friday. People who think their flights may be affected should check the TIA Web site for cancellation updates.
