Today's winter snowstorm caused many flight delays and cancellations at South Bend Regional Airport. The airport remains open, but a vast majority of flights never made it out.

Many air travelers didn't even find out that their flights had been cancelled until after they arrived at the airport. Some say they were disappointed, but are not surprised with the weather conditions.

One man we chatted with made it out early this afternoon to Detroit, one of the few flights to make it out. Others say they plan to call later or just try again tomorrow.

“We was going to Vegas, it's our 47th anniversary tomorrow, we were hoping it would go, knew there was a chance it wouldn't,” says Donna McLaughlin. “I wish we were up in the air, but I'd rather they put it off a day than slip off the runway,” says Donna’s husband Wayne. “They are
rescheduling it for tomorrow, hopefully early morning, unless it's cancelled again,” says Robert Willis, another man flying with two young children.

Indianapolis and Fort Wayne airports have announced many cancellations as well. Your best bet is to stay in contact with your airline if you have a flight tonight or tomorrow.

Right now, South Bend Airport staff are just concentrating on keeping the runways clear so planes can land if they're headed here.
