Some airlines canceling Thursday flights out of Oklahoma City, Tulsa

Southwest Airlines is canceling dozens of flights Thursday out of the Oklahoma City and Tulsa airports because of the winter storm warning.

Some early morning flights will leave Will Rogers World Airport and Tulsa International, but all afternoon flights have been canceled, said Southwest spokeswoman Ashley Rogers.

Passengers booked on Thursday flights should check Southwest's Web site at southwest.com, where information on the winter storm is posted. Passengers also can check a flight's status at the airline's toll-free reservations line at 800-435-9792.

In Tulsa, airport officials met with airlines serving Tulsa International Airport to review flight schedules and discuss preparations being made in anticipation of the upcoming winter weather, said Tulsa airport spokeswoman Alexis Higgins.

If weather permits, several early flights to Houston, Dallas and St. Louis will depart, Higgins said.

The airport is expected to have updates on several airlines operating out of Tulsa at 5:30 p.m. today, including American Airlines, Continental, Delta, Frontier and United, she said.

A spokeswoman for American Airlines said the airline has not made a decision on Thursday's operations in Oklahoma.
