Syracuse airport flights canceled, delayed due to massive winter storm

The airports remain open, though it is unclear when flights will resume, according to a 11:30 a.m. alert released by the Port Authority of NY and New Jersey, which oversees the area airports. "They said the 6 will be cancelled so now I have to go home", said Maria, who was heading back home to the city.
