Half of Logan’s flights canceled Tuesday; Amtrak, bus service to New York also canceled
About half the flights at Logan International Airport are canceled Tuesday, including all service by the airport’s largest carrier, JetBlue Airways, as airlines start repositioning planes and rebuilding schedules after Monday’s massive travel disruptions due to Hurricane Sandy.
About 90 percent of the airport’s approximately 1,000 inbound and outbound flights were scrapped Monday as the East Coast bore the brunt of the storm.
Nationwide, more than 15,500 flights have been canceled since Saturday due to the storm, according to FlightStats.com, including more than 5,700 flights on Tuesday.
Amtrak trains were halted along the Northeast Corridor for the second straight day on Tuesday, causing problems for more than 750,000 passengers who ride that route each weekday. Amtrak crews are removing trees and making repairs to tracks and tunnels; a decision on restoring service north and south of New York for Wednesday will be made later on Tuesday, Amtrak said.
New York was hit hard by the storm, and travelers trying to get there from Boston by bus are also out of luck. All service from South Station is canceled once again on Tuesday until the bridges leading into the city reopen. Buses headed north will start running Tuesday afternoon, and buses to the Cape started running Tuesday morning.Katie Johnston can be reached at email@example.com. Follow her on Twitter @ktkjohnston.
