Most flights are taking off and landing on time at Sacramento International Airport, despite air traffic problems elsewhere caused by last night's New England snowstorm.
No arriving or departing flights were delayed longer than 30 minutes as of 2:30 p.m. today, according to the status board on the airport's web site. The airport did not experience many delays this morning, said airport spokeswoman Linda Cutler.
Cutler said that later in the day "we have a few departures into DC and New York that in likelihood are going to be affected" but that the airport did not expect widespread disruptions.
More concerning for travelers will be connecting flights heading toward the northeast and, in particular, Massachusetts, Connecticut or Maine. Logan Airport in Boston will not have a runway open until at least 11 p.m. tonight, according to the Boston Globe, citing airport officials.
"The best thing they can do is to check with their airline" on the status of connections, Cutler said.
Much of the northeast is digging out of one to three feet of snow from the storm.
