Travel Alert January 2022: More Travel Waivers as Winter Weather Impacts Northeastern United States and Southeastern Canada

Flaky stuff causes flaky travel problems.

If the northeastern United States or southeastern Canada is in your travel plans over the next couple of days or so, you may want to consider delaying your travel — or, at least, keep yourself updated as to the latest information pertaining to the weather — due to the second winter weather system of this week which has been bringing both snow and cold air to the region.

Travel Alert January 2022: More Travel Waivers as Winter Weather Impacts Northeastern United States and Southeastern Canada

Snow has fallen across much of the northeastern United States and southeastern Canada; and although the storm system has headed out over the Atlantic Ocean for the most part, the aftermath of the winter weather system is still causing problems with all different modes of travel and prompted more airlines to issue travel waivers…

…but the snow also created a beautifully idyllic landscape in many areas.

The unusually cold winter weather is only adding to the tens of thousands of cancellations and delays of flights which have been plaguing airlines in the United States since Christmas Eve on Friday, December 24, 2021. Thousands more flights have already been canceled due to weather, with greater than 2,300 flights canceled today alone.
