DENVER (AP) - Southwest Airlines has canceled all its flights through 4 p.m. Friday at Denver International Airport because of a winter storm hitting Colorado.
The airline says it wanted to mitigate the impact of the storm on its operations elsewhere across the country. It will re-evaluate what do to about the rest of the day's flights later.
About 300 flights have been canceled at the airport so far, about 18 percent of its average daily operations. Delays are also expected since planes need to be deiced before taking off.
