Some flights to the USA have been cancelled from Heathrow Airport
Holidaymakers heading for the USA faced disruption as the Superstorm Sandy-hit east coast was pounded by another powerful storm.
Flights in and out of the north eastern cities of New York, Philadelphia and Boston were cancelled as snowy and foggy conditions hit a region still clearing up after the recent freak weather.
Most of the cancellations were flights to and from Newark Airport, which was the worst hit by Sandy. The flight tracking system Flight Aware recorded 1,328 US cancellations by 4.30pm on Wednesday and 381 flights were stopped on Thursday, with passengers needing to check their
travel insurance and rearrange their journeys.
United and American were among the airlines which suspended their operations in the region due to snow and limited visibility, with passengers able to reschedule flights without charge.
All three airports in the New York area are still working on repairs to equipment such as navigation aids that were damaged by Sandy, which forced around 20,000 flights to be cancelled.
