The Gulfport-Biloxi International Airport was practically empty from Monday night until Thursday morning. The individual airlines made the call to cancel flights and re-book passengers. They hoped canceling flights early would help people make arrangements and not be stranded in the airport like many in Atlanta. Airport Director, Jim Foster, says the airport building stayed open throughout the storm to help flyers, and now offers these words of advice: “When conditions like this occur and people have flights canceled, just work with your airline and the reservations. They're there to help. They do a fantastic job really, especially with a situation like this when tens of thousands of people have their flights disrupted and canceled.” Today the airport was up and running at full force and passengers are finally getting on their delayed flights. There is congestion in major hubs like Atlanta and Houston, but here in Gulfport, traffic looks to be back to normal.
