A snowstorm Tuesday gummed up traffic at New York’s three major airports, leaving travelers stuck with hours-long delays.
Air traffic controllers were holding all flights into JFK Airport at their origin until 1 p.m. after a wintry mix of snow and ice blanketed the region.
Flights into Newark Liberty Airport were delayed by an average of four hours, according to FlightAware. Delays at LaGuardia were minimal Tuesday afternoon, according to the flight-tracking website.
The National Weather Service issued a winter weather advisory for the tri-state area Tuesday, which projected snow and sleet accumulations of two to three inches and wind gusts of up to 30 miles per hour.
