Flights Slowly Resuming at Philadelphia International Airport

By John McDevitt

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Limited flight service resumed this afternoon at Philadelphia International Airport.

Delta Airlines was the  first to resume flights, with airplanes landing and taking off in the 1pm hour.

Rachel Boyce, a trainer for a restaurant chain, spent an extra day in Philly.  She says she enjoyed her visit but is glad she’ll be getting back to her life in Austin, Texas.

“Technically I was supposed to be back at work today, so I’m on a couple of calls and getting some stuff done on my laptop,” she said.

Airport spokeswoman Victoria Lupica had some advice for travelers: “Don’t drive to the airport unless you know your flight is going to take off or you know the status of your flight.”

Most airlines were spending the day repositioning aircraft.  US Airways planned to resume passenger service on  Wednesday morning.
