Delta Air Lines issued weather travel waivers for more than a dozen Midwest cities it serves — including major hub Minneapolis-St. Paul (MSP).
Ugly weather that meteorologist Taylor Ward says “has the potential to be one of the most impactful winter storms of the season for the Upper Midwest” is expected to hit the Dakotas, Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Michigan on Friday.
The National Weather Service issued a Winter Storm Warning for the Minneapolis area. The warning is in effect from 12:00 PM CST Friday, January 17 through 6:00 PN Saturday evening, January 18. Heavy snow and wind gusts of 40 MPH are predicted.
The MSP weather waiver is effective Friday and Saturday. Tickets must be reissued on or before January 21, with rebooked travel commencing no later than January 21, as well.
The other waiver is valid only on Friday. Tickets must be reissued on or before January 20, with rebooked travel commencing no later than January 20. Affected cities are:
Bloomington, IL (BMI)
Cedar Rapids, IA (CID)
Chicago Midway IL (MDW)
Chicago O’Hare, IL (ORD)
Des Moines, IA (DSM)
Lincoln, NE (LNK)
Kansas City, MO (MCI)
Moline, IL (MLI)
Omaha, Nebraska (OMA)
Peoria, IL (PIA)
Rochester, MN (RST)
Sioux Falls, SD (FSD)
Springfield, MO (SGF)
St. Louis, MO (STL)
Passengers may make a one-time change without being assessed a fee, though fare differences may apply.
