Flights from the UK and Ireland to New York were set to resume today, after the chaos of Hurricane Sandy.
Most flights from New York and neighbouring Newark are still affected from the fallout of the superstorm but some flights are expected to resume later on Wednesday.
A spokesperson for Belfast International Airport said they hope that United Airlines flights will arrive from Newark on Thursday morning.
Meanwhile British Airways has been able to operate normal services to four other US east coast cities - Boston, Baltimore, Washington DC and Philadelphia but says they have cancelled the majority of remaining flights to and from New York and Newark.
Virgin Atlantic has resumed its flights to London Heathrow from noon and has put on an extra flight to help get stranded passengers home.
A statement from Dublin Airport said that transatlantic flights to the East Coast continue to be affected and that passengers should contact their airline or airline’s website before travelling.
Aer Lingus and Delta flights due to arrive in Dublin from New York on Thursday morning are scheduled go ahead, although the first Aer Lingus flight due at 5.24am is cancelled. Flights from Boston are operating normally.=
