Winter Storm Genny has prompted flight cancellations at Bradley International Airport in Windsor Locks.

According to the airport, it saw 40 percent of Wednesday's flights canceled as of 4 p.m.

It said that number could go higher as the storm evolves.

"Passengers who are scheduled to travel are advised to check with their airline on their individual flight itineraries and any potential rebooking options before heading to the airport," said Alisa Sisic, marketing manager and public information officer, Bradley International Airport. "Several airlines have issued travel waivers."

The snow didn’t start falling in Windsor Locks until later in the day on Wednesday, but many flights were canceled or delayed because of winter weather in other areas.

The terminals were calm and quiet at night.

“It is the emptiest I’ve seen it in a long time, no doubt,” said Marco Docchio.

Weather caused many flights into and out of Bradley Airport to be delayed or canceled, even though the airport didn’t see much accumulation.

“We got nothing today. Just flurries on the way over here,” Docchio said.

Lucy Morrison started her day in Charlotte.

“When I left it was beautiful, nice and sunny. It really was,” Morrison said.

Morrison came to CT to visit her daughter at Western Connecticut State University, and wasn’t too happy about any possible disruption to her trip.

“Snow, I was not excited,” Morrison said.

The travelers who did make it this far in their trip, simply hope their luck continues.

“I started in Miami. I am in Connecticut, Hartford and I’m going to Scotland. No delays so far,” said Chris Usher.

Usher’s flight to Scotland is scheduled to leave at 11:30 p.m. on Wednesday night and is still listed on time.

Flight statuses could be looked up on Bradley's website here.
