CHICOPEE, Mass. (WWLP) – 22News went to Bradley International Airport Monday night, and spoke with travelers who had arrived just ahead of the snowstorm. Unfortunately, not everyone was that lucky; some people will have to wait until Wednesday to travel.
Some travelers boarded earlier flights on Monday, others got delayed. Wyatt Zawisca, who flew in from Kansas City, Missouri, said, “Yeah, our flight got delayed an hour. We were worried we were going to get cancelled and be stuck in D.C. for a night, two nights until the storm passed.”
In the end, travelers ticketed for afternoon and early evening flights in and out of Bradley International Airport all made it to their destinations, but passengers booked on later flights were out of luck.
The last passenger flight out of Bradley left at around 7 o’clock Monday night. After that, everything got cancelled. No other flights landing or departing. Cargo planes will operate, conditions permitting. The next passenger flight departing or landing at Bradley may not be until Wednesday morning.

According to Kevin Dillon, the Executive Director at Bradley, “We are not expecting any other flight activity until Wednesday morning here at the airport. Some of the airlines may try to bring in some terminating flights tomorrow night to have the aircraft available here for Wednesday morning, but that’s really going to depend on the conditions here at the airport.”
Bradley crews will work through the storm to clear the runway. The snows expected to keep falling overnight and Tuesday during the day. If you have to go pick anyone up from the airport, or if you had plans to travel, it’s a good idea to call ahead and check with your airline for the latest flight status.
