Flights to and from Nashville International Airport are being canceled as the threat of Hurricane Sandy looms along the east coast. Several flights to and from Nashville are already affected, and more are sure to follow throughout the week.
Flights along the eastern seaboard have been affected, with the majority of flights to New York City, Newark, Baltimore, Washington D.C., Philadelphia, Boston and Norfolk cancelled, according to Nashville airport spokeswoman Emily Richard.
Nashville is taking on 13 additional aircraft from five airlines that have been kept from flying east, Richard said, essentially providing parking for them.
Travelers headed elsewhere should remain wary and check their flight information, Richard said.
“When something of this magnitude impacts major hub airports, there could be a ripple effect,” she said.
