Airport officials said more than 60 flights had already been canceled by 6:30 a.m. Wednesday.

Crews are working at Indianapolis International Airport to keep runways clear but some flights are already being canceled.

Mike Medvescek, Director of Operations at the airport, says as of 6:30 a.m., approximately 60 flights have been canceled for mid-afternoon. He says crews have been out since 3:30 a.m. pre-treating the runways and others will be plowing as the snow continues to fall. Medvescek says the biggest issue is deicing the planes.

“With the extreme winds we have, holdover time for the deicing fluid is questionable from the time they get sprayed and out to the runway. So the airlines review that process. If it doesn‘t feel safe, they‘ll cancel the flight,” he says.

Medvescek says the airport has services available for any passengers who become stranded at the airport. He says its goal is to make the passengers feel as comfortable as possible.
