Winter Storms May Impact Travel
Feb. 13, 2007 –Ongoing winter storms are blanketing the Rocky Mountain, Midwest and East Coast regions. Storm warnings were in effect Monday from Iowa through New York State. Many areas have been hit hard over the last few weeks, including upstate New York, where more than 100 inches has fallen on communities near Lake Ontario over the past 10 days and forecasters say this latest storm should bring more.

United is offering a waiver to customers who would like to change their travel plans, noting that storms may cause flights to be delayed or canceled. Customers can minimize possible inconvenience by checking the status of their flights at or by calling 1-800-UNITED-1 (800-864-8331) for automated, up-to-the-minute flight arrival and departure information before leaving for the airport.

The ticket wavier is available for customers flying on tickets purchased Feb. 12 or earlier, for travel between Feb. 13 and Feb. 14, to, from, and through Colorado; Connecticut; Illinois; Indiana; Massachusetts; Maryland; Michigan; Missouri; New Jersey; New York; Ohio; Pennsylvania; Rhode Island; Virginia; Washington, D.C.; and Wisconsin.

US Airways also said it is revising its policies for customers flying through Feb. 17 to New York destinations Watertown, Buffalo, Massena, Ogdensburg, Rochester, Syracuse and New York. The entire itinerary can be moved forward or delayed up to seven days from the scheduled origination date. Customers traveling on certain fares, such as some available from third party ticket discounters, including but not limited to discount travel Web sites may not have all elements of the policy available to them.

NTA members with temporary closures or other news to report may submit information to NTA Public Relations Manager Sara Morton at or by calling 800.682.8886, ext. 4418 (U.S and Canada) or 859.226.4418.
