Over 250 flights cancelled at DFW Airport due to snowstorm

Photo (21)Snow and de-icing activity continues to slow down operations at Dallas/Fort Worth Airport on Thursday.

As of 1 p.m., there were 257 arrivals and departures cancelled at DFW, spokeswoman Cynthia Vega said. Aircraft continue to be de-iced on the south end of the airport and the runways remain open.

But the delays are piling up. According to Flightstats.com, over 300 departing flights have been delayed at DFW and another 252 arrival flights are delayed.

American Airlines spokesman Matt Miller said the airline has had deicing delays throughout much of the day at DFW. About 250 flights were cancelled with a majority of those flights operated by American Eagle.

Much of the precipitation has come to an end over North Texas, but with temperatures expected to remain below freezing through Friday afternoon, flight delays could increase throughout the day.
