TIA still seeing cancellations, delays from winter storms

It wasn't much compared to last week's travel woes, but Tampa International Airport dealt with delayed and cancelled flights Monday thanks to cold weather nationwide.

TIA Spokeswoman Christine Osborn said 10 flights were cancelled and 49 more were delayed about 11 a.m. Monday.

Though Florida is warm and sunny, major hubs and busy airports including Washington, D.C.'s Reagan National Airport, New York's LaGuardia Airport and Charlotte Douglas International Airport are dealing with ice and snow on the ground, Osborn said, which generates delays.

Dallas-Fort Worth International airport was a major source of cancellations, Osborn said. That area is still recovering from an ice storm that created hazardous conditions last week.

Those delays stack up and could lead to further cancellations throughout the day. Osborn said travellers should check with their flight status with their specific airlines.
