MILWAUKEE -- Hurricane Sandy is impacting travel plans of those across the nation as it is set to make landfall on the east coast Monday, October 29th.
Air travel is also being affected by the storm -- even at Milwaukee's Mitchell International Airport.
"There are many fewer customers here today then there would on a normal Monday or work day. People are staying home. They know their fights are cancelled to the east coast and those are very busy markets for us," Mitchell International Airport spokeswoman Pat Rowe said.
Rowe says airlines have been reaching out to customers to let them know flights are cancelled and are being rebooked.
"Airlines are offering people many ways to get flight info. and updates. They can sign up for text updates, email updates and cell updates," Rowe said.
"We're getting phone calls and we're having to reschedule people's trips or just outright cancel. A lot of people are coming in and out of international flights, and business travelers going (to the east coast) for business. (The east coast is) a big hub for people going on to Europe and other destinations," Newlands said.
Some officials have said it could take days for flights and other modes of transportation to get back on track following the cancellations once the storm rolls through.
"It looks like they're kind of anticipating the storm and possibly the aftermath of the storm going through November 3rd, so we would like to re-accommodate. Realistically, we're looking into early next week to get people back," Newlands said.
Airlines are being flexible with travelers. Many are automatically rebooking people and refunding tickets.
