ATLANTA (AP) — More than two-thirds of all scheduled flights to and from Atlanta’s airport have been canceled, including the three Delta flights out of Fort Wayne.

The total of canceled flights at Hartsfield Jackson-Atlanta International Airport by Wednesday afternoon — 1,640 — led the nation’s airports, according to the flight tracking service FlightAware.

Officials at Atlanta’s airport, which is Delta Air Lines’ main hub, have said they plan to keep it open, with some key employees spending the night in the terminal.

In Charlotte, N.C., more than half of all inbound and outbound flights for today — more than 800 flights — have been cancelled, FlightAware reported. Charlotte is a major hub for US Airways.
