(NEW YORK) — John F. Kennedy International and LaGuardia airports are expected to resume passenger flights on Saturday morning after cancelling flights on Friday due to blizzard conditions.
Newark Liberty International Airport in New Jersey does not expect to fully resume flights until noon on Saturday due to the fact runways had to be shut down overnight as a result of heavy snow that produced whiteout conditions.
According to FlightAware.com, airlines have cancelled 5,368 flights this week due to the blizzard in the Northeast, and 1,756 flights were cancelled so far on Saturday.
