BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — With blizzard and winter storm warnings set to take effect across much of western New York Friday morning, many travelers are trying to hop on a plane before the weather gets bad.
But as of Thursday morning, a number of flights at the Buffalo Niagara International Airport between Chicago and Cheektowaga have already been canceled.
That spells bad news for many hoping to catch this weekend’s Bills game against the Bears in person. Concerning the Bills themselves, their flight is scheduled to take off Thursday night around 7 p.m.
But crews are ready to make sure any flights that remain are safe for travelers and crews.
“This is an award-winning airport when it comes to snow removal,” NFTA Communications Manager Kelly Khatib told us Thursday morning.
Khatib says the airport has about 40,000 gallons of de-icer and anti-ice supplies. Hear more from her about how the Buffalo airport is safely preparing for the upcoming storm in the video above.
