About two dozen flight cancellations and a dozen delays were reported at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport today, an airport official said.
As of this morning, the numbers showed most of the cancellations affected flights to the eastern part of the country as a storm hits the area, said spokeswoman Melissa Scovronski. That includes flights to Washington, D.C., Baltimore, and Philadelphia, she said.
The delays, however, are not specifically connected to flights going to the east, Scovronski said.
"It was kind of all over the United States, possibly still being impacted by the weather," she said. "Those planes couldn't get to Minnesota, so of course the delays are there."
Scovronski said passengers should check with their airline for any cancellations or delays, and arrive at the airport early. It's the busiest time of year for the airport, she said. In addition, there's a 6.4 percent increase in passengers over this time last year, and that's expected to last into March, she said.
