BATON ROUGE, LA (NBC33) — If you plan on flying out Tuesday or Wednesday, be sure to call the airport or check online before you leave.
Delta canceled more than 1800 flights statewide ahead of this winter storm. According to officials, 840 flights from Atlanta have been affected.
The good news is: Louisiana travelers flying Delta have a chance to make one-time changes to their tickets at no charge. Replacement tickets will be re-issued by February the first.
But it’s not just Delta that's cancelling flights. Other airlines have had to cancel as well.
Baton Rouge Airport officials say it’s unlikely that any flights will depart from or arrive at BTR today. Airport officials also said that some airlines are doing their best to assist passengers with re-booking their flights.
"Anytime we have to inconvenience clients, it's not good for the airlines or the airport," said Jim Caldwell, of the BTR Airport.
