DENVER - Flights have resumed between Denver and the New York area following Hurricane Sandy but travellers are being warned to check their flight status because of the backlog created by the storm.
Two of the largest airports serving New York — Newark and John F. Kennedy — re-opened Wednesday but were operating on a limited basis. LaGuardia remains closed.
Hurricane Sandy cancelled thousands of flights across the country over the past three days. Airlines positioned planes at airports around the country, including Denver's, to escape the storm and to help resume flights after the reopening of East Coast airports.
Fewer than 50 flights were cancelled at Denver's airport on Wednesday.
