NEW YORK (February 9, 2013)--New York's airports were digging out from under nearly a foot of snow Saturday and were allowing some flights to land, while Boston's Logan Airport remained closed.
The Port Authority of New York & New Jersey said the first inbound passenger flight at John F. Kennedy International Airport landed at 9:30 a.m. Saturday.
Airports in the Northeast shut down Friday afternoon as a snowstorm of potentially historic proportions blew in.
Logan Airport says it expects to reopen Saturday afternoon.
Across the region, flights are expected to be back on close to normal schedules on Sunday.
The flight-tracking website FlightAware says airlines have canceled 5,368 flights because of the storm.
Meanwhile, Amtrak said the New York-Boston route will remain closed Saturday.
