Airlines cancel dozens of flights at Denver International Airport Wednesday, delays possible

DENVER - Airlines cancelled dozens of flights at Denver International Airport Wednesday due to the spring snowstorm.

As of 10:45 a.m., the airlines had reported 41 flight cancellations, according to a news release from DIA officials.

Airlines will be deicing aircraft so passengers should expect to spend a little bit longer on the plane before departing, airport officials warned.

Snow removal crews are ready to treat and clear runways, taxiways and roads as needed, according to airport officials.

DIA has more than 250 pieces of snow-removal equipment and more than 500 trained snow-removal personnel. 

Travel tips for passengers from DIA:

- Check your flight status before heading out to the airport with their airline or on www.flydenver.com.
- Drive with caution and allow extra time when heading to the airport.
- A good rule of thumb is to be inside the airport two hours prior to flight departure time. This should allow for plenty of time to navigate flight check-in, security lines and travel to the gate.
- DIA recommends passengers download the free FlySmart travel app for the Blackberry, iPhone and Android.
