More than 300 DIA flights delayed or canceled during snowstorm

At least 405 incoming and outgoing flights at Denver International Airport have been delayed or canceled Friday as a snowstorm sweeps through Colorado, based mostly on FlightAware.

Seven airways canceled 50 incoming and outgoing flights on Friday, based mostly on FlightAware, a web service — along with 30 on Southwest Airlines and 9 on SkyWest Airlines.

“We’re seeing heavy bands of snow. It’s calming down right now,” DIA spokeswoman Alex Renteria said at 10 a.m.

She said three out of six runways are in operation at a time. Peña Boulevard is moist and has patches of snow, Renteria said, urging people to drive slower on the DIA entry road.

“Please check your flight status with your airline before you come to the airport,” she said.

Thirteen airways launched 355 flight delays as of 10 a.m. on Friday, FlightAware said. The number of delays and cancellations are rising nearly every minute.

Southwest has had 101 delays and United Airlines has reported 74 delays so far, the service said.
