TAMPA — An official at Tampa International Airport said travel was running smoothly the morning before Christmas, and that airlines did not anticipate major delays.
"It's really actually eerily quiet out in the main terminal," said spokeswoman Emily Nipps about 9 a.m.
There were just a few slight delays this morning, but no major hurdles to late holiday travelers.
"Even the flights going to New York are on time," Nipps said.
Tuesday was much busier, she said, with nearly 200 delays in arrivals or departures throughout the day. Some flights to New York, Newark and Philadelphia were backed up as much as two hours.
The National Weather Service warned that a large storm system over the Eastern United States could cause some travel problems over the holiday. Forecasters said people should expect rain from northern Florida up to New England.
