Spokeswoman Jessica Wharton says the airport itself is open, but airlines are choosing to cancel flights. So if you have a flight leaving or are expecting someone to arrive at Newport News-Williamsburg Airport, call the airline before you venture out.

At Norfolk International Airport, spokesman Wayne Shank the airport is open, but many airlines are choosing not to fly full schedules.

'Our message is if you're flying, the airport is open but check with the airline to see if they're flying,' Shank stated.

Shank said that conditions at other airports also impact flights that are scheduled to leave or arrive at Norfolk.
