Several flights canceled at Bradley International Airport

Heavy snow was expected on Thursday

WINDSOR LOCKS, Conn. (WWLP) – Many flights to and from Bradley International Airport were canceled Thursday due to the snowstorm.

Bradley Airport spokesperson Alisa Sisic told 22News that 50% of incoming and outgoing flights were canceled by airlines as of 10:30 a.m. Thursday. If you were scheduled to fly, you were urged to check the flight status with your airline before leaving for the airport.

One woman from Connecticut told 22News she didn’t know her flight was canceled until she got to the airport. “It’s a little frustrating, but I know it happens to a lot of people, and I’m usually not part of it, I usually just see it on TV,” Chris Dugo said. “But, you guys go with the flow, and hope for the best.”

Snow started falling in western Massachusetts Thursday morning and was expected to bring more than a foot of snow in some areas, before tapering off Thursday night. MassDOT and Governor Charlie Baker urged people to stay off the roads.
