Flights slowly resuming in eastern US

Airport reopening follow tropical storm’s US departure

Following the departure of Tropical Storm Irene from the New York area on Sunday, the region’s airports are picking up the pieces and slowly resuming flights. John F Kennedy and Newark Liberty international airports opened to arrivals from 06:00, while departures began at 12:00. At LaGuardia Airport all normal activity resumed at 07:00. However, many flights continued to be cancelled. Air passengers could continue to see delays and cancelations. And although most public transport will be running again by these times, there may be delays.
Because the New York area has so much passenger traffic, the shutdown of services has produced a ripple effect, resulting in tens of thousands of flight delays and cancelations throughout the world.
