For the second day in a row, dozens of flights were canceled or delayed at Indianapolis International Airport.
Unlike Sunday, when many of the cancellations stemmed from the heavy snow that fell on much of Indiana and other parts of the Midwest, today‘s flight problems were largely residual.
“As you‘d expect, it takes some time to recover from what happened yesterday, with crews and aircraft being out of position throughout the airline‘s networks,” said Carlo Bertolini, spokesman for the Indianapolis Airport Authority.
As of Monday morning, more than 130 inbound and outbound flights were canceled or delayed, though Bertolini said that some flights were still on schedule, with that number likely growing as the day goes on. “With the precipitation over, we will probably see some improvement later today. But obviously, you have to check with your airline, as they are the prime sources of that information.”
Unlike some airports, very few people appear to be stranded in Indy. “We‘re not a connecting airport, so typically our passengers either live or are based here in Indy or are flying in,” said Bertolini.
For those who are stuck, some airlines are making arrangements for them, and Bertolini says some – though not all – of the airports restaurants and other facilities are open to serve them.
