An ugly winter storm that may create blizzard conditions has prompted Delta Air Lines to issue a weather travel waiver for several Upper Midwest airports it serves — including major hub Minneapolis-St. Paul.

The waiver is in effect Saturday, December 28 and Sunday, December 29.

A number of destinations in the Dakotas and Minnesota are included in the waiver.

Affected cities are:

Minnesota

  • Bemidji (BJI)
  • Brainerd (BRD)
  • Duluth (DLH)
  • Hibbing (HIB)
  • International Falls (INL)
  • Minneapolis (MSP)
  • Rochester (RST)

North Dakota

  • Bismarck (BIS)
  • Fargo (FAR)
  • Grand  Forks (GFK)
  • Minot (MOT)

South Dakota

  • Aberdeen (ABR)
  • Sioux Falls (FSD)

Tickets must be reissued on or before January 1, with rebooked travel commencing no later than January 1, as well.

Passengers may make a one-time change without being assessed a fee, though fare differences may apply.

I just left Fargo tonight. People with travels this weekend are plenty worried about the storm.

  1. Tough that people have only till jan 1 to rebook n travel

  2. @Dotti: Based on weather reports I saw tonight, I wouldn’t be at all surprised to see the waiver extended into Monday.

  3. Chris,

    We just flew through MSP home from PHX last night (Saturday night), no issues. Looking at the weather forecasts, today looks reasonable and tomorrow looks like it could bechallenging.
    That all being said, Delta did a fine job of giving us a heads up well in advance, providing opportunity to change flights if necessary, and then the crew at the Sky Club in PHX reviewed and confirmed our connection was tracking on time.
    I’ll take a bit of luck and the Delta team’s level of professionalism trip after trip!
