Pet Travel Update: More Severe Weather Means More Delays on the East Coast

Severe winter weather just won't leave the East Coast alone. Another set of storms has rolled through, causing possible worries and delays for pet travelers.

Both Continental and United have canceled flights scheduled yesterday and today, which has impacted passengers and cargo shipments, as well. Here's an airport-by-airport summary:

-Newark Airport was closed this morning, but will resume shipping on-hand cargo at 5 p.m. Thursday evening (EST). Other scheduled shipments will begin departing on Friday morning.

-Washington Dulles was impacted by severe weather Thursday morning as well, but conditions are presently improving and the facility is open for freight customers.

-In Boston and New York (both LGA and JFK), some delays may be expected, but in general recovery is going well and cargo operations are functioning as normally as possible.

Be sure to check airport schedules before you head out. Hopefully that's the last snowstorm we'll see this year, and in the meantime, remember to keep your pets safe for the rest of the winter. Here's wishing safe travels to everyone!
