DFW Airport Completely Closed Tuesday Morning

DFW AirportAll flights have been canceled and Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport announced at about 6:30 am that it has completely closed, except for air travelers already in the airport.The latest winter storm to affect U.S. air travel already is taking its toll on fliers, forcing the cancellation of more than 4,500 flights today alone.

There’s no word yet on when DFW will be re-opened but they hope to have the airport re-opened by 7-8 am, according to Airport representative David Magana.

Runways and terminals are iced over and, although crews were treating those areas with de-icing agents, Magana said high winds and other factors prevented the airport from continuing to de-ice planes.
