Northeast air travel resumes as JFK, Newark reopen
FORT MYERS, Fla. - Air travel out of Southwest Florida International is beginning to return to normal as airports up and down the northeast begin to re-open.
21 flights were canceled out of RSW today. All of those flights were bound for New York's LaGuardia, JFK International, Newark and White Plains.
Two of New York City's three major airports are open. Flights are slowly resuming at John F. Kennedy International and Newark Liberty International. LaGuardia is still closed.
Airlines say they are beginning limited service in New York after Hurricane Sandy shut down air travel in the Northeast earlier this week.
Travelers hoping to fly out of New York on Wednesday are being told to check with their airline before heading to the airport.
Delta Air Lines Inc. says it hopes to resume flying at LaGuardia on Thursday. However, airport authorities say they don't know yet when LaGuardia will reopen.
Airports in Washington and Philadelphia re-opened on Tuesday.
