AUSTIN, Texas - Air travelers should check their flight status before heading to Austin's airport due to the winter weather and freezing precipitation expected tonight and tomorrow. Carriers have begun cancelling some arrivals in at Austin's airport after 8 p.m. tonight. This will result in cancellation of some departures tomorrow as under normal circumstances, night arrivals remain at the airport until morning departure time.
Further, departing travelers may experience delays before take off and arrivals may experience delays before deplaning due to activities and safety pre-cautions necessary during inclement winter weather events. These activities include the de-icing of aircraft and ensuring aircraft movement areas are clear.
As winter weather is expected to impact flights to and from Austin's airport, passengers should be prepared for cancellations or delays. Flight status can be checked directly with carriers or on the airport's Web site http://www.abia.org and click on "Real Time Arrivals and Departures
