As John has told us nasty weather is targeting the east coast - and that means holiday travel is at risk. Its already cancelled hundreds of flights in the midwest - but there is some good news - From this point on the snow - is over - it will be all rain, but some of it could be severe - and John has declared a Weather Authority Alert day for tomorrow - So how might all this weather impact flights in and out of Jacksonville International Airport? Tim Pulliam is live at JIA with more. 3 The quick answer.Minimal impact. Or none at all according to a JIA spokesperson. 00-0505-10 Mike Stewart/ JIA Spokesperson SOT 155410 Rarely do we get hundreds of people stranded at the airport. That happens at hub airports where flights are in and out and people have to change planes there may be long delays or flight cancellations. It happens here but it's very very rare.Stewart says it's not usual for JIA to be significantly impacted by weather related delays and cancelations.Since JIA is not a major hub airport--where passengers are constantly connecting to other planes, Stewart says he doesn't expect the approaching storm to cause any significant delays to passengers departing from JIA. 155353 Because we are an origin and destination airport when they're coming to the airport, they either know that their flight is going to be on- time or has been canceled, or It may not be until it's in the air when it's diverted.AAA estimates 43 million travelers are expected to travel for Thanksgiving.The wintry blast causing headaches for some of them; from weather related accidents out west, to airport delays in the mid-west.And now the wicked weather is headed towards the northeast -- but not without dumping rain here in our area.Stewart says IF the weather causes significant delays for JIA tomorrow and into the night, the airport's concessions stands may stay open later to accommodate passengers who are stuck. 3 Stewart also advises for traveler's and people who are picking up people here to check with their airline carrier ahead of time to see if there are any flight delays or cancellations.
