Bohemia, NY (PRWEB) November 01, 2012
On November 1, 2012, travel and clothing company Surf Patch released a statement regarding the devastation of Superstorm Sandy on airports following a Washington Post article about all Northeast airports getting shutdown making it impossible to fly clear the next couple of days.
According to the Washington Post article, “Superstorm Sandy grounded more than 18,000 flights across the Northeast and the globe, and it will take days before travel gets back to normal.” The article informs that on Tuesday alone, more than 7,000 flights were canceled and will resume slowly starting Wednesday. The article stated that “Authorities closed the three big New York airports because of the storm.
New York has the nation’s busiest airspace, so cancellations there can dramatically affect travel in other cities.” According to the article John F. Kennedy airport may be open starting Wednesday, but there is no known re-opening date for LaGuardia and Newark airports. The article stated that, “Airlines anticipated the storm’s impact and began canceling flights on Saturday. By Tuesday they had scrapped more than 18,000.”
Travel company Surf Patch knows how hard it will be to fly clear through these airports, thanks to Sandy. World traveler Takara Licausi stated, “So many flights were canceled and delayed due to Sandy, and all passengers can due is be patient. Airport personal is doing everything they can to get flights up in the air again, despite the magnitude of this recent tragedy.”
