6 p.m. Update: Will Rogers World Airport officials told News 9’s Sylvia Corkill operations are wrapping up as of 5:30 p.m.  

Planes that did not arrive or depart by 5:30 p.m. most likely means travelers may be stuck where they are as the snowfall becomes heavier, limiting visibility.

For safety reasons airlines have canceled in some cases all flights until Wednesday morning.

“If OHP, if OCPD, a lot of the public safety entities are saying please stay home that does weigh in, we have to take that into consideration because we don’t want anyone getting trapped on the roadways, or getting stranded at the airport,” said Joshua Ryan with Will Rogers World Airport.

Maintenance crews will continue working throughout the night in order to ensure at least one roadway remains open.

Several incoming and outgoing flights have been canceled at Will Rogers World Airport due to continued inclement weather Tuesday.

Officials with the airport said some delays and cancellations are to be expected. However, the airport is hopeful operations will be able to continue.

“We’ve been able to maintain at least one runway and taxiways open through the first snow event and we hope to do the same as the second snow event comes into town,” said Joshua Ryan with Will Rogers World Airport.

Since Sunday, 150 flights have been canceled.

Travelers are urged to check their flight’s status before heading to the airport.
