Storm creates travel problems in Central Wisconsin


The snow in Southern Wisconsin and Chicago impacted flights at Central Wisconsin Airport.

It canceled flights between Central Wisconsin Airport and O'Hare in Chicago.

Sunday and Monday 6 flights on American and United Airlines were canceled or delayed between the two airports.

Officials say other nearby airports were in a similar position, so most people were re-booked on later flights or on other airlines.

"It's just an inconvenience for the passengers that are traveling or that have to make certain destinations if they're going through Chicago because even once they get to Chicago flights going out of there may be delayed or canceled due to the storm and due to plane positioning," said James Olson, the Director of Operations of Maintenance at CWA.

Olson said he expects flights out of CWA to be operating on normal schedules Tuesday.
