Winter storm disrupting flights at Columbia airport

From staff reportsJanuary 22, 2014 

— Flights are being canceled and delayed at Columbia Metropolitan Airport after a fierce winter storm struck the East Coast, dumping more than a foot of snow on some areas of the Northeast.

Flights from Washington, D.C., and New York into Columbia were canceled altogether Wednesday morning, as was an early morning flight from Columbia to Detroit. Flights out of Columbia to heavily hit New York and Philadelphia were delayed by as much as four and a half hours.

Travelers flying to Charlotte and Atlanta were largely on time Wednesday morning. But if they were picking up connecting flights out of those airports, delays were possible.

Delays could continue throughout the day as cities deal with snow clean-up and airlines deal with stranded passengers.
