It’s a big day for travel and travel delays in the Northeast U.S. on Monday, with more than 5,000 flights cancelled for Monday, Jan. 26, and Tuesday, Jan. 27, as of last count.
The biggest impact is on a track from Washington, D.C.’s Reagan National Airport up through Boston’s Logan International Airport, with flights into and out of Toronto and Montreal affected as well. Amtrak has also announced it will be running a modified schedule in the Northeast Corridor.
If you’re flying through an airport in that area and your flight hasn’t yet been cancelled, make sure to reconfirm your flights with the airline before leaving for the airport. In addition, using the CWT To Go app will keep you apprised of flight delays and cancellations.

As always, we recommend that you get to the airport with your phone fully charged and with your chargers packed in your carry-on bag, so you always have access to them. Follow @CWTAmericas on Twitter for more information about delays and closures.
But even if you are not flying into, out of or through one of these airports, you can’t assume you are in the clear. Although the airlines have had plenty of warning and have proactively cancelled many flights, your flight could still be affected if it relies on an airplane or an airline crew that is coming from one of the cities that has seen an impact from the weather.
