MADISON (WKOW) -- Several dozen flights experienced delays or cancellations at Dane County Regional Airport as a result of snow throughout the Upper Midwest.
Airport marketing and communications director Brent McHenry told 27 News the majority of affected flights were scheduled to route through Chicago or Minneapolis.
McHenry said airlines agents were working to find space on planes for passengers with canceled flights.
As of midday, Robbin Andrews of Washington, D.C. was still trying to find a way home. Her original flight, and a rebooked flight, both had connections through Chicago's O'Hare airport, and both were canceled.
Steve Powers of West Palm Beach, Florida came to Madison for a wedding, and was hopeful his rescheduled flight through Chicago late Tuesday afternoon, would get the green light.
"I just want to get home," Powers told 27 News.
The Chicago Tribune reported as many as one thousand flights out of Chicago's airports had been canceled, as the city was pelted with as much as eight inches of snow Tuesday.
McHenry told 27 News Madison's snowfall was not enough to ground departing or arriving flights.
Airport officials encouraged travelers to check flight status before making plans.
McHenry said lower-volume, Tuesday travel helped airport and airlines officials to accommodate stranded passengers.
