SAN ANTONIOUpdate (10:30 p.m. Monday): The San Antonio International Airport has confirmed that all flights have been canceled for Tuesday due to the winter storm.

The airport said in a Facebook post that the flights have been canceled as “passenger safety remains the number one priority.”

Original story (6 a.m. Monday): The wintry weather unfortunately is putting the breaks on many people’s travel plans Monday as dozens of flights have been either delayed or canceled due to the current weather conditions.

According to FlySanAntonio.com, the earliest departure out of San Antonio is not until 1:45 p.m. and the earliest arrival is not until 12:35 p.m.

A spokesperson for the San Antonio International Airport said that traffic Sunday night had to be directed to the lower level where it was covered and less iced. There were no reports of any incidents.

David Nichols and his wife were visiting from Phoenix, Arizona. He said didn’t expect that his celebratory trip would keep him from getting home.

“I don’t know what’s going to happen overnight that we are miraculously ready to go tomorrow,” he said.

Kia Wylie took a flight to the Alamo City to visit friends and family. She is originally from New Orleans, Louisiana but believes it could me another few days before she gets home.

Wylie said she is anxious and frustrated but remains in good spirits.

“It’s no one’s fault. It’s out of everyone’s hands at this point,” Wylie said.

TxDOT says if if you plan on heading to the airport, you should give yourself extra time on the road and before you head out, you should check the status of your flight.
