More flight delays and cancellations for a second week

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD)- The Lubbock Preston Smith International Airport is reporting some cancellations this morning, and the Weather Service advises there could be some hazards on area roads.

There were as many as three cancellations reported early this morning, an American flight to Dallas, and two Southwest flights to Dallas and Austin. The FAA continues to evaluate the issues that surround the failure of the Instrument Landing System that has plagued the airport since Tuesday of last week.

The ILS basically keeps planes on track for a safe landing, mainly during weather events such as dense fog. Some planes can use an alternate system and land, but others are not equipped with the alternate system causing delays and cancellations of flights into Lubbock.

Congressman Randy Neugebauer tells NewsChannel 11 that fixing the problem is the top priority for the FAA.

Meanwhile, passengers and those expecting someone to arrive at the airport should check with the carriers for specific flights.

Along with air travel problems in the area road travel isn't much better. The Weather Service advises that slick spots could persist on area bridges and overpasses, and drivers could experience reduced visibility in some areas due to fog. There also is the possibility of snow showers, especially in areas north of Lubbock.
