All 3 of NYC’s major airports back in operation

NEW YORK (AP) — All three major New York airports are open again after Superstorm Sandy shut them down.

LaGuardia reopened Thursday on a limited schedule. Its bigger international counterparts, Kennedy and Newark Liberty, had already reopened on a limited basis.

The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey says the first plane landing at LaGuardia was a Delta Air Lines flight out of Syracuse.

Spokesman Pasquale DiFulco strongly urges passengers to confirm flights before heading to the airport. He says Kennedy and Newark should be at full operations tomorrow.
