WINDSOR LOCKS, Conn. (WTNH) — The weather system stretching across the U.S. has caused tornadoes, flooding and snow. It’s also disrupted those who are traveling by air.

Over the last few days the airlines have had to cancel 2,800 flights and delay thousands of others. Many of the airports seeing those cancellations include: Chicago O’Hare, Chicago Midway and Dallas/Fort Worth. These airports are major hubs for American Airlines, United and Southwest. Issues at these airports often cause a ripple effect across the entire aviation system.

Tuesday morning flights out of Bradley Airport on United and Southwest were canceled to Chicago and Toronto. Other airlines had to delay flights. The weather is expected to improve throughout the day, but there may still be some lingering issues. Anyone who is traveling should call ahead to their airline or download the airline’s app on your phone so you can get the latest departure and arrival information.
