Hurricane Sandy: All Remaining Monday Flights To and From University Park Airport Canceled; Some Tuesday Flights, Too
All commercial flights to and from University Park Airport have been canceled for the rest of the day because of Hurricane Sandy, an airport spokesman said Monday afternoon.
Some Tuesday flights still remain, however, according to James Meyer, director of the Centre County Airport Authority.
All U.S. Airways flights, which go through Philadelphia, are canceled Tuesday.
United Airlines, which flies through Washington D.C., has canceled the first two flights Tuesday, which are scheduled to leave State College around 6 and 10 a.m.
Delta, which travels through Detroit, has not yet announced any cancellations for Tuesday.
Each individual airline makes the final call regarding the status of Tuesday flights, Meyer said. Departures from State College are dependent on the other three airport operations in Philly, Washington and Detroit.
Refunds are dependent on each airline, Meyer said, and airlines are typically not responsible for booking a hotel if the flight is canceled because of weather. They will, however, re-book your flight at no cost.
A spokesman regarding corporate and private flights was not available for comment as of Monday afternoon.
Penn State has canceled classes after 1:10 p.m. Monday because of Hurricane Sandy. The University Park campus will remain closed until 6 a.m. Tuesday.
According to forecasts, University Park will receive rain Monday into early Tuesday, in total of about three to five inches. Flooding across parts of the state is expected, as are downed trees and power outages.
