One of the year’s busiest travel days could become one of the messiest, too.
The National Weather Service issued a Winter Storm Warning for the Minneapolis-St. Paul metro area and surrounding counties.
“Snow will develop across southern Minnesota late Tuesday afternoon and spread northeastward across southern, and east central Minnesota, and into west central Wisconsin Tuesday night,” NWS advises. “The snow will be heavy at times. Snow will end from west to east Wednesday morning, but blowing snow could continue into the afternoon.”
In response, Delta Air Lines just issued a weather travel waiver for flights into and out of MSP.
That’s rather significant considering MSP is the nation’s 17th busiest airport and a major Delta hub.
Even if you connect through MSP on Wednesday and must be somewhere that day or Thanksgiving, now is the time to contact Delta and discuss your options. (Unless you need an excuse to not make your Thanksgiving dinner and arrive a day or so late 😉 )
Tickets must be reissued on or before November 29, with rebooked travel commencing no later than November 29, as well.
Passengers may make a one-time change without being assessed a fee, though fare differences may apply.
Visit the weather waiver’s alert for more information and learn about how Delta weather waivers work in general.
