ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) – On October 26 the Albany International Airport said, heavy rains in New York City caused the Albany Airport to become “the port in the storm.” Meaning several New York City flights from last night and this morning have had to come to the Albany International Airport and wait out the storm.

A Ground Stop at New York City airports last night forced seven New York flights to be diverted to the Albany International Airport to wait out the storm. By 11:00 p.m. last night, Delta, JetBlue and United had each sent flights to Albany.

Crews from Million Air, the Airport’s fixed base operator, stood by to refuel the aircraft and prepare
them for their return flights to New York City. By 3:19 a.m. all but one of the flights had departed Albany for points in New York City.
