Airlines canceling flights out of Denver on Wednesday ahead of expected blizzard
Southwest and Frontier have canceled all departures out of DIA after 8:30 a.m.
Airlines operating out of Denver International Airport already have canceled Wednesday flights based on the forecast of a blizzard.
Denver is under a blizzard warming Wednesday, from 10 a.m to midnight, and forecasters with the National Weather Service are calling for 70 mph winds with up to 12 inches of snow. DIA and northeastern Colorado are under the blizzard warning.
“Travel will be very difficult,” the weather service warns. “Widespread blowing snow will reduce visibility to near zero at times.”
Southwest Airlines has canceled all departures out of DIA after 8:30 a.m. Wednesday, said Emily Williams, an airport spokeswoman.
“Southwest has proactively canceled nearly all operations” out of DIA, the airline said Tuesday in a statement. “We encourage all customers who are either traveling to, from or through Denver to visit Southwest.com to check their flight status or to make changes to their plans.”
Frontier Airlines also was watching the weather and bracing for cancellations and delays.
