Boston’s Logan International Airport is expected to operate normally by Saturday, even as it handles an influx of travelers stranded by the first nor’easter of the year.

Planes began to take off and land after the storm finished blowing through Friday morning, but more than 300 flights still were canceled, according to Orbitz, a travel planning website. Normally, about 1,100 flights arrive and depart the airport daily.

Ed Freni, director of aviation at the Massachusetts Port Authority, which operates the airport, said Logan ran 534 flights Thursday, about half the normal traffic, and kept two runways open throughout the storm, which first hit the area Wednesday night. More than 10 inches of snow fell in Boston.
