Flight activity “improved significantly” at Los Angeles International Airport Tuesday, although some weather-related delays lingered.

The Federal Aviation Administration reported delays of up to 90 minutes at airports in Newark, Minneapolis, Philadelphia and Montreal, and there was some resulting impact on flights operating at LAX, according to airport spokeswoman Nancy Castles. Most of the delays were weather-related, she said.

“There continue to be some delays, but not many cancellations at all, related to weather conditions in the Rocky Mountains, the Midwest and the Northeast,” Castles said this afternoon.

The delays “appear to be diminishing with improving conditions in the Midwest and back East,” she said.

Travelers were reminded to check their flight status with their carriers before coming to the airport, Castles said.

Hundreds of flights were canceled nationwide Monday due to winter storms moving through the Midwest and East Coast.

At LAX, more than 100 departures and arrivals were delayed and over 20 flights were canceled between midnight and 5 p.m. Monday, according to Castles.
