While cold weather continues to grip much of the nation, flight cancellations were few for travelers in and out of Seattle-Tacoma International Airport on Tuesday.
A check of the airport’s website showed a half-dozen cancellations to or from Midwest and East Coast airports Tuesday. Southwest Airlines cancelled three flights, to and from Chicago. Jet Blue canceled a flight from Boston to Seattle, American canceled a flight from Chicago, and a United/Air Canada codeshare flight to Toronto was also grounded.
Monday, perhaps the worst recent day for travel, the airport had only 15 cancellations out of 850 scheduled flights, said Perry Cooper, airport spokesman. Sea-Tac has far more flights to and from West Coast destinations than to and from the Midwest and East, accounting for the low number of groundings here.
“Of course, if it’s your flight, it’s a big deal,” Cooper said. He reminded travelers to always check with their airline before leaving for the airport. Some flights have been delayed. For a look at flight-status information for all Sea-Tac flights, click here.
