Full ground stop at Chicago O'Hare airport amid winter storm
CHICAGO, Ill. (AP) -- The Federal Aviation Administration has halted all flights in and out of Chicago's O'Hare Airport — one of the nation's busiest — due to a sprawling winter storm.
The alert on the agency's website said the stop would last at least through 9 p.m. CST.
Hundreds of flights already were canceled Friday at the airport. Earlier in the day, a plane slid off an icy taxiway in Kansas City.
Due to snowstorm moving through the Chicago area, airlines at ORD have cancelled nearly 570 flights. Check flight status w/ carrier.— O'Hare Intl. Airport (@fly2ohare) January 18, 2020
