LITTLE ROCK — Dozens of flights in and out of Arkansas' busiest airport have been cancelled due to snow, sleet and freezing rain that has hit the state.

Bill and Hillary Clinton National Airport remained open on Monday, but spokesman Shane Carter said that 35 flights in and out of the airport had been cancelled due to the wintry weather. Carter said additional crews were working at the airport to keep the airfield and parking lots cleared, but the decision whether to cancel flights was up to the airlines.

Carter advised passengers to check websites for their airline or for the airport to see if their flights had been cancelled. Carter said he expected additional cancellations throughout the day.
