LANSING, Mich.With the winter storm across Michigan and much of the Midwest expected to impact travel and cause flight delays and cancelations, Nicole Noll-Williams, president and CEO of the Capital Region Airport Authority, issued the following statement:

“The airport will remain open and operational to support our customers and tenants, which includes our airline partners, cargo and car rental agencies.

“As we’ve seen over the last 24 hours, weather can impact travel and cause flight delays and cancelations. These decisions are made by airline leadership. Airlines’ top priority is always to get customers to their destination safely, and flight delays and cancelations due to weather conditions are to ensure customers remain safe.

“While LAN will remain open and operational, the safety of our customers and tenants is our number one priority. We hope everyone remains safe and want to remind travelers to be patient with airline staff while they work through flight schedule changes. ”
