AIRPORTS IN THE EAST of the US have reopened after a major snowstorm swept through the region over the past few days, but backlogs and serious delays are expected to affect flights today.
Anyone expecting to travel to the US today should check the status of their flight with their airline before heading to the airport.
Thousands of passengers will not be able to travel until their flights are rescheduled towards the end of the week, according to the PA.
Almost 7,000 flights were cancelled in the region over recent days because of the weather.
The days after Christmas and before New Year are traditionally one of the busiest times of the year to travel as people return home or to work after Christmas holidays, or set off to celebrate the New Year. Flights were already expected to be running close to capacity, the PA reports.
The New York Times reports that the north-east bore the brunt of the storm, where tens of thousands of people have been left without electricity.
