Wednesday, about a dozen flights from Albany were cancelled, but that number would be a lot higher if not for the 12-hour shifts being put in to keep the surfaces clean at Albany International Airport.

“This storm will take probably two days for us to clear," said Doug Meyers, Albany International Airport's director of public affairs.

Inside the airport Wednesday, travelers kept an eye out on the long list of departures and arrivals, several of which were cancelled or delayed.

“It’s snowing right now, so I was scared that my flight would be delayed or even worse cancelled," said one traveler. 

To keep that from happening, airport crews worked to keep snow off the tarmac and any other hard surface at the airport.

Meyers says if you put all the hard surfaces at Albany International Airport together into a standard 12-foot single wide highway lane, you’d get 120 miles.
