WINDSOR LOCKS, Conn. (WWLP) – A slow moving snowstorm meant a busy day for people flying in and out of Bradley International Airport.
Crowds quickly formed at Bradley Wednesday, as an early morning rush of passengers attempted to get ahead of the storm. When 22News got to Bradley International Airport at 4:30 Wednesday morning, the TSA Pre-Check line stretched back to ticketing counters.
Shannon O’Neill from Baltimore told 22News, “We’re getting out early enough. If we had left on our original flight, which was 2:50, we would have definitely been worried. We would have been scrambling. There was a bunch in our group that their fligths were cancelled.”
And as the day continued, so did the cancellations. Many of the passengers who got out early enough to beat the storm were hoping they’d get lucky again, and come home to warmer weather.
Steve Bohan of Guilford, Connecticut said, “I am done. I’m just afraid that being away, my wife won’t be able to handle the snow, because when I get back I’ll have more stuff to move when I get home.”
March is a busy time for families looking to go on vacation before the warmer weather comes to New England, but sometimes late winter storms affect those plans.Be sure to check your flight status before you head out the door, using our Flight Tracker Tool.
