Officials at Philadelphia International Airport say they plan to “gradually” resume operations Sunday following the massive weekend storm.

The storm, which brought an entire season’s worth of snowfall to the city over two days, prompted cancellation of all flights into and out of Philadelphia on Saturday.

All major airlines issued waivers for travel over the weekend, allowing passengers to rebook onto earlier or later flights to avoid the storms.

Passengers looking to cancel trips should wait until the airline officially calls off the flight. Airlines have been much more proactive in recent years about cancelling flights, often doing so up to a day in advance. More travellers are affected, but they aren’t stuck waiting in airports. It also lets airlines restart the system quicker because they have planes and crews in place.
