BALTIMORE (WJZ)–The weather elsewhere, as well as here, has left many passengers grounded at BWI Thurgood Marshall Airport.
Ron Matz reports for the most part, operation is normal at BWI. But if you’re trying to get out in and out of places like Boston, New York, Philadelphia or New Jersey, it’s a far different story.
Despite the snow, it was a busy morning at BWI. Some flights to the north of Baltimore were delayed or canceled by the big storm.
“We have seen a number of delays and cancellations, primarily to markets to the Northeast. In fact, we’ve actually had a number of diversions come into BWI. The flights were originally intended for the New York area,” said Jonathan Dean, BWI spokesperson.
Some travelers like Diana Coyne of Lewes, Del., were getting out of dodge.
“First to Miami for two days and then to a cruise to the Panama Canal,” Coyne said.
Raymond Chapman had a busy all-nighter clearing BWI parking lots.
“I get a little tired but my coffee keeps me going, thanks to my wife. I’m kind of used to it. I’ve been doing it for like seven years,” Chapman said.
With snow on the ground, it was a great time to get away.
Across the country, nearly 500 flights have been delayed. Another 1,500 have been canceled.
