The major New York area airports, JFK, LaGuardia and Newark, N.J., reopened Saturday morning after shutting down the previous evening because of a severe winter storm.
The storm pummeled a wide swath from Maine to New York, depositing huge amounts of snow and paralyzing life in the region.
The smaller Stewart International airport in New Windsor, NY also reopened Saturday.
All four airports are asking customers to check flight status with the airlines before departing for the airport.
Boston's Logan airport remains closed to all air traffic.
The winter storm has caused the cancellation of 6,702 flights from Thursday through Sunday, according to the live flight tracking service FlightAware.
The tracking service said 5,687 cancellations were within, into, or out of the U.S.
