Airlines have already begun to cancel flights ahead of the latest storm to hit America’s Northeast.
Nearly 1,200 flights have been pre-emptively grounded for Wednesday 7th March and a further 175 for Thursday. Around 500 of those cancellations came from airline JetBlue, which operates its busiest bases at New York JFK and Boston.
The wave of pre-emptive cancellations comes as the second powerful nor’easter in a week takes aim at the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast. Winds aren’t expected to be as strong as in last week’s storm – which forced airlines to cancel 4,000 flights – but snow is expected be heavier and fall over a larger, more populated area.
