Augusta Regional Airport flights canceled

Nearly all commercial air flights arriving and departing Augusta Regional Airport have been canceled for the remainder of today because of inclement weather.

Most early-morning flights operated on schedule, but US Airways and Delta Air Lines canceled flights for the afternoon hours, when sleet and ice are forecast.

The airport, however, will not close, said Lauren Smith, the communications manager.

Air travelers can check the status of their flight by visiting or the airline Web sites.
