Ground stop lifted at LaGuardia Airport


A ground stop affecting New York's LaGuardia Airport on Tuesday morning was lifted by the afternoon.

A disabled plane on the runway had caused delays earlier in the day, according to the Federal Aviation Administration. The incident potentially disrupted both arriving and departing flights, the agency said.

However, travelers at LaGuardia were not entirely in the clear. The FAA said bad weather led to delays averaging more than an hour for incoming flights as of about 1:45 p.m. ET. Flight tracking site showed LaGuardia as the top airport in the world today for both departure and arrival delays.

Also due to weather, departure traffic destined to Newark International Airport in New Jersey is currently experiencing delays averaging a little over an hour. Departure traffic to the John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York and Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport also saw delays of about a half hour.
