Local Airlines Feeling Weather Woes

Jan 6, 2014

As a blast of winter weather moves across Kentucky, airlines are delaying or cancelling flights to and from the area because of difficulties with ice and snow around the country.

At Barkley Regional Airport in Paducah, United Airlines canceled all flights in and out of the airport for today and Tuesday because of the freezing temperatures.

Airport officials say the cancellations are because of icing at other air fields where the airline flies.

Multiple flights on U.S. Airways, Delta Airlines and American Airlines destined for Louisville International Airport were reporting delays of more than three hours and cancellations.

The flights were from a variety of locations, including New York, Chicago and Dallas.
