Winter weather affects travelers at Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport

HEBRON, Ky. - Winter weather conditions across the country are impacting travel plans for people around the Tri-State.

9 On Your Side reporter Mario Ramirez reported just after 6 p.m. Friday that there nearly 40 total flight schedules had been affected by winter weather conditions at airports around the country.

Jay Brock, spokesperson for Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport, said the flight delays appear to be a result of weather conditions in other areas, primarily the Midwest and Northeast.

"Our crews have worked hard all day to make sure our runways have been clear. We are not currently experiencing weather issues at CVG," Brock said.

Some of the hardest hit areas appear to be in Chicago, New York, Washington and Philadelphia. Ramirez reported that one Philadelphia airport has canceled all flights since 5 p.m.

"They have shut down too many airports. It's really frustrating when the airlines can't get it together. I wish the airlines had to abilities to reroute passengers to different areas to get people where they need to go," said University of Cincinnati student Josh Lay who may be forced to spend the night in the airport after his flight to Philadelphia was canceled.

Below is a list of cities that were cancelling or delaying flights as of 6 p.m.:

Outgoing cancelations (3): Charlotte, Chicago and Philadelphia.

Outgoing delays (13): Chicago, Houston, Kansas City, New York, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Toronto and Washington.

Incoming flights have also been affected by weather conditions. There are currently 14 flights operating on delayed schedules and four other flights have been canceled.
