Most flights were taking off and landing on time Saturday at Sacramento International Airport, despite air traffic problems elsewhere caused by Friday night's New England snowstorm.

No arriving or departing flights were delayed longer than 30 minutes as of 2:30 p.m. Saturday, according to the status board on the airport's website. The airport did not experience many delays Saturday morning, said Linda Cutler, airport spokeswoman.

More concerning for travelers will be connecting flights heading toward the Northeast and, in particular, Massachusetts, Connecticut or Maine. Logan Airport in Boston was not scheduled to have a runway open until at least 11 p.m. Saturday, 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 up to 3 feet of snow from the storm.
