Airlines Issuing Travel Waivers Ahead of Northeast Storm



A coastal storm heading toward the Northeast United States has resulted in airlines across the region issuing travel advisories through Thursday.

According to, the jet stream is driving a cold front and low-pressure system from the Great Lakes toward the East Coast Wednesday, which has resulted in soaking rain and strong winds from the mid-Atlantic states to New England.

The storm system will also get a jolt of energy as a second area of low pressure forms near the East Coast and intensifies as it moves toward New England Wednesday night and Thursday.

As a result of the impending storm and the likely air traffic control and routing delays, Delta Air Lines has issued a travel advisory for airports in Boston, Hartford, New York City, Newark, Providence and more for Thursday.

Impacted travelers flying with Delta will be eligible to make a one-time change to their itinerary without incurring a change fee. Other carriers have issued similar travel advisories and will waive change fees, including American Airlines and United Airlines.

In total, rainfall is expected to reach one-to-three inches from the eastern mid-Atlantic to much of New England, with the Hudson Valley and New England possibly experiencing as much as five inches of rain and localized flooding.
