“There is going to come a time where we will need to be prepared for the airport. Airplanes coming in and out of the airport. And if we wait until the last minute we are not going to be prepared. So we have to be proactive, make sure we take care of the paved surfaces and make sure people are able to get on the flights and go to the places they want to go to,” said Carl Beardsley, executive director of the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton International Airport.

Beardsley believes all flights will be back to normal starting Thursday afternoon.
