Following Thursday’s inclement weather in the Northeast, Delta has extended its winter weather waiver for customers traveling through the New York metro area Friday as gusty winds pose a challenge for the operation throughout the day primarily at Delta’s New York JFK and LaGuardia hubs.
The waiver has been issued for affected cities including New York’s JFK and LaGuardia, Newark, N.J., Newburgh, N.Y. and White Plains, N.Y., to allow customers the ability to make a one-time change to their travel plans without incurring a fee.
Customers are encouraged to check Delta.com or the Fly Delta Mobile App for the latest flight status.
Wednesday update, noon ET
As the first winter storm of the season makes it way towards the mid-Atlantic and Northeast, customers can expect de-icing operations at airports throughout the affected cities and as a result, Delta has proactively issued a winter weather waiver for Nov. 15, ahead of the storm.
Delta's operational teams are keeping a watchful eye on a winter weather system stretching from the Ohio Valley and Eastern Kentucky to the Northeast throughout Thursday that is expected to bring frozen and mixed precipitation to the region. Forecast reports show freezing rain and light snowfall is expected midday Thursday into Friday morning. Boston may see 1-2 inches of snow by Thursday evening.
The waiver has been issued for the affected cities including Baltimore, Washington, D.C., Philadelphia, New York, Hartford, Conn., Providence, R.I., and northeast to Boston, to allow customers the ability to make a one-time change to their travel plans without incurring a fee.
As always, customers are encouraged to check Delta.com or the Fly Delta mobile app for the most up-to-date flight status information.
