TRI Warns of Weather-Related Delays and Cancellations

Blountville, Tenn – The Tri-Cities Airport Authority (TCAA) is alerting passengers that flight delays and cancellations are projected to begin this evening and impact travel through early next week.

Winter storm Izzy is impacting air travel throughout the aviation system causing delays and cancellations in a number of markets. The Tri-Cities Airport (TRI) website indicates American Airlines flight 5656 scheduled to arrive tonight at 9:29 PM has been cancelled. American flight 5657 scheduled for Saturday morning is also cancelled. 

“We would like to remind passengers to either check the daily flight schedule on, or to check the status of their flight directly with the airline before traveling to the airport,” said Kristi Haulsee, TCAA director of marketing & air service development. “Even if there is not a significant weather event in our area, the winter storm is impacting the aviation system as a whole causing delays and cancellations.”

The best way for passengers to check directly with the airlines will be electronically as their customer service numbers will be extremely busy.
