Storm canceling many Indianapolis flights

Posted: Updated:
INDIANAPOLIS -

The winter storm hitting Indiana has contributed to numerous flight cancellations at Indianapolis International Airport.

The airport expected to have about 300 passenger flights arriving or departing on Wednesday, but airport spokesman Carlo Bertolini says about a third of those have been canceled before midmorning.

Bertolini says about 20 flights departed Wednesday morning.

He says the Indianapolis airport's runways were open but that the storm's size was causing troubles at airline hubs as well.

Bertolini says it could take a few days to get travelers on other flights since most planes are at least 85 percent filled around Christmas. He recommends that travelers check with their airlines before heading to the airport.
