Heavy snow causes flight delays and cancellations

Heavy snow made for delays and cancellations at Cherry Capital Airport Sunday.

Many people hoping to fly into or from Traverse City for the holidays were met with delays and cancellations Sunday.

Most of the flights were on schedule, but, as of mid-afternoon Sunday, at least two flights scheduled to arrive at Cherry Capital Airport were delayed and one was diverted. At least two flights departing the area were cancelled and two delayed.

Families waiting for loved ones to arrive had to wait a little longer. Lisa Blackburn, of Long Lake Township, was waiting for her daughter's arrival, but said that her flight in from Chicago was diverted to Grand Rapids. However, Blackburn is just happy that her daughter will get to be home for the holidays.

"I look at the fact that holiday travel and having your kids far away, it's so important getting them back here and just being able to have that family time," Blackburn said.
