As snow storms continued to shower fresh snow in the Dallas-Fort Worth area in north Texas in United States on Friday, canceled flights at Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport caused major disruption of plans among fans of the Super Bowl championship game of National Football League (NFL), to be played on Sunday Cowboys Stadium in Arlington.
According to media reports, the storm blanketed the region with up to eight inches of snow and the area around Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, which falls under Dallas-Fort Worth region, received about four inches of snow.
About 300 inbound flights were canceled at Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport on Friday, media reported. However, considering the tourist influx that the Super Bowl game could bring to the region, efforts are on from the administration and airlines to resume services.
We are putting extra effort to operate our flights in from Chicago today to keep the Super Bowl-oriented traffic moving, Tim Smith, an American Airlines spokesperson was quoted as saying by The Associated Press.
Though the meteorology department forecasts that there will be high temperature but clear skies on Sunday, many tourists have already missed flying to Texas for the Super Bowl game on the weekend.
Those who visited Texas during the week before the snow storm prefer to stay in their hotels, which is a loss to tourism in the nearby spots, observed a tour operator in Texas.
