Travel better today

Tue., Dec. 23, 2008, 11:43 a.m.

Spokane International Airport was getting flights in and out pretty well, officials said. There have been some delays, but nothing more than the usual for holiday travel.

No flights were cancelled this morning, said Todd Woodard, airport spokesman.

“It’s going a lot better today than yesterday, and Monday wasn’t as bad as the three previous days,” Woodard said. “Everything is looking pretty clean. This (weather reprieve) will give us a chance to further clean up and get ready for the next snow storm. This reprieve has been helpful.”

The next storm is due Wednesday.

Woodard said travelers from Western Washington are actually calling him about traveling out of Spokane International Airport.

“I think that speaks to the dependability of our airport,” Woodard said.

Greyhound was still experiencing cancellations. No buses from Spokane were going to Portland, Ore., or Billings, Mont., officials said.

Amtrak was back to normal.
