The moves position the airline to quickly reset its flight schedule and operations once the storm passes.

Delta has proactively cancelled approximately 300 flights ahead of a storm expected to dump 15-20 inches of snow in Boston and significant accumulation in New York on Tuesday.

To position the airline to quickly reset its flight schedule and operations once the storm passes, Delta will strategically move aircraft away from northeastern airports, preventing the airplanes from becoming covered in large amounts of snow and ice.

Delta has issued a winter weather waiver that allows customers whose travel originates, terminates, or connects through these affected cities Tuesday to make a one-time change to their travel plans. Customers are encouraged to check Delta.com  or the Fly Delta Mobile App for the latest flight status. 

 

1 p.m. Monday update:

With the northeastern United States preparing for yet another winter weather system, Delta is working to minimize operational impact to the airline's customers.

The worst of the winter storm is forecast for Tuesday morning and early afternoon for airports in the northeast with snow accumulation of 15-20 inches possible for Boston. Flight disruptions are expected and Delta expects to proactively cancel approximately 175 flights Tuesday to align the operation with the expected snowfall and deicing throughout. Additional cancellations are likely. 

In anticipation of the heavy snowfall and to position the airline to quickly reset the operation once the storm passes, Delta will ferry aircraft away from northeast airports, strategically positioning them outside of the storm's range, preventing the aircraft from becoming covered with large amounts of snow and ice.

Delta has issued a winter weather waiver that allows customers whose travel originates, terminates, or connects through these affected cities on Tuesday to make a one-time change to their travel plans.
