The HTA is recommending that all east bound visitors scheduled to return to or travel through the continental US this weekend to contact their airlines or travel agent to reconfirm flights prior to departing for the airport. Visitors are advised to work directly with hotels should flight delays occur and a need to extend your stay is expected.
