PHILADELPHIA -

Philadelphia International Airport spokeswoman Victoria Lupica joined the FOX 29 Morning News to provide an update Monday morning.

She said there were no planes taking off or landing early Monday morning.

"In anticipation of the weather event, airlines preemptively canceled the majority of the flights this morning. So, travelers had a good idea that their travel plans were change," Lupica said. "It gives us a chance to have our crews clearing the runways and roadways."

Travelers are being encouraged to check on their flights either by contacting their individual airlines, checking the airport's site www.phl.org, or calling its toll-free flight information number which is 800-PHL-GATE.

Lupica said the airlines are expected to resume normal operations around noon.

The airport also tweeted shortly before 7 a.m., "The majority of arriving/departing flights had been canceled for this morning & airlines plan to resume normal operations around noon today!"

Lupica added that the airport's "very seasoned crews, at this point" are working to get all of the snow off the runways and taxiways.

She urged everyone to exercise caution whether they are traveling or picking someone up at the airport.
