Denver airport cancels or delays nearly 200 flights Thursday

Flying in and out of Denver International Airport might not be the only hiccup on your travel journey on Thursday. Road closures around the state is making travel difficult or nearly impossible.

While DIA only received 4.2 inches of snow overnight, low temperatures and staffing shortages have led to 177 flight cancellations on Thursday. Another 56 flights in and out of Denver have been delayed.

“All six of our runways are open and de-icing operations are over,” Alex Renteria, spokesperson for the airport, said. “Snow crews worked hard overnight.”

Just how many flights have been impacted directly by weather rather than maintenance or staffing is unknown.

If you’re heading to the airport, it would be wise to check on road conditions and your flight status before making your journey.
