Operations resume at Northeast airports following blizzard

NEW YORK (AP) - All three major New York City airports are accepting flights again following the blizzard.

Airplanes started arriving at Newark Liberty Tuesday morning. LaGuardia and John F. Kennedy International began to receive inbound flights on Monday night.

Nearly 1,500 total flights were canceled at all three airports.

Airlines are slowly resuming operations at Logan International Airport but it could take days to catch up.

Air travel in the nation's busiest, most crowded airspace nearly shut down, and thousands of stranded passengers turned terminals into open-air hotels while they waited for planes to take off and land on plowed runways.

More than 2 feet of snow fell on some parts of the Northeast

Thousands of travelers could be stranded a couple more days.
