OKLAHOMA CITY, February 3, 2011 –Airlines at Will Rogers World Airport have resumed their normal flight schedules in and out of Oklahoma City. Most early morning flights were able to depart on time and it appears that the majority of flights for the rest of the day will stay on schedule. The terminal building, empty for the last two days, is bustling with travelers anxious to get to their destinations.
While operations at Will Rogers are getting back on track, other airports are still digging out from the storm that moved across the nation. Most flights to Chicago O’Hare have been cancelled for the day. Two flights are still scheduled, but subject to change. Other cities in the Midwest and Northwest are also experiencing delays and cancellations that more than likely will impact Oklahoma City travelers.
Even as airports begin to recover from this massive snowstorm, another system of rain, snow and ice is heading into southeast Texas, including Houston. Continental Airlines has cancelled all flights from Oklahoma City for the rest of today and the first three flights Friday morning.
It appears that it will take several days, or longer, for flights to return to normal. The airport continues to advise travelers to check with the airline for their flight status prior to coming to the airport.
To check on a flight or to change a reservation, travelers should contact the airlines directly. A complete list of airlines serving Will Rogers, their websites and reservations numbers can be found at www.flyokc.com under “Airline Info.”
