The wintry blast that is blowing across Minnesota is snagging airline travel.

WCCO reports that more than 50 flights out of Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport had been cancelled by early afternoon, according to spokesman Pat Hogan.

KARE 11 quotes Hogan as saying that crews are putting chemicals on the runways, and only one of the runways is being used at a time while the other is plowed.

The Flightstats website is tracking the traffic at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airpor. The website says, "This airport has issued a Ground Delay Program affecting flights arriving between 1:00 PM Feb 10 and 9:59 PM Feb 10 due to snow and ice." Early this afternoon the website reported that flights were being delayed by an average of 65 minutes.

The website for Minneapolis-St Paul International Airport has issued an alert that suggests that all travelers check with their carrier for their status of their flights, including delays or cancellations.
