Transatlantic flights hit as eastern US braces for massive storm

A number of transatlantic flights from Ireland have been cancelled due to the adverse weather conditions forecast for the eastern coast of the United States.

According to Dublin Airport, several Aer Lingus flights to Boston and New York airports have been cancelled, in addition to one Delta and one United flight to New York.

Passengers are advised to check with their airlines in advance of travelling to the airport.

Snow began blanketing the northeastern United States yesterday as a winter storm packing blizzard conditions rolled into the region, prompting public officials to ask people to stay home while airlines grounded flights and schools cancelled classes.

The US National Weather Service issued blizzard warnings for parts of eight states including New York, Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Connecticut, with forecasts calling for up to 60cm of snow by early today, with temperatures 15 to 30 degrees below normal for this time of year.

Some 50 million people along the Eastern Seaboard were under storm or blizzard warnings and watches.
