Due to the New England blizzard, Nemo, thousands of flights have been cancelled in the United States. Air travel is virtually impossible on Friday, February 8 and even into Saturday due to expected heavy snows.

According to USA Today, more than 3,700 flights were cancelled in the United States since Thursday. Many of the cancellations were announced before it started snowing as weather reports predict the storm will leave several feet of snow in certain areas.

For instance, United Airlines cancelled 900 Friday flights on Thursday. Delta cancelled 740. JetBlue cancelled 640 flights.

According to flight tracker FlightAware.com, 2,875 flight have been cancelled to and from the US and the number is still growing. The most cancellations are at airports in the Mid-Atlantic and New England.

Newark Airport in New Jersey has the most cancellations with 289 departing flights cancelled and 399 incoming flights nixed. New York's John F. Kennedy Airport has 326 incoming flights cancelled and 212 outgoing flights cancelled. LaGuardia, Chicago O'Hare, Philadelphia International, and Reagan National also had many cancellations.

Certain airlines were deeply impacted. United Airlines has 475 cancelled flights. Delta cancelled 305 and JetBlue has 270 cancellations.
All of these numbers are expected to grow as the weather picks up and Saturday flights may continue to be impacted as well.

While many of the cancellations are taking place at airports on the east coast, travel is impacted around the country and even the world as many may have had flights that connect at these big east coast airports.

Some airlines are already waiving their fees so travelers can change their tickets, such as Delta and JetBlue.

Make sure to call the airline or check their website to see if you flight is affected by the storm before heading to the airport.
