HOUSTON – Approximately 150 flights were canceled at both of Houston’s major airports Friday morning.

At least half of the flights out of Bush IAH were grounded by the icy conditions. 

Ramps at Beltway 8 at JFK and Beltway 8 at Highway 59 were closed because of the ice.

The APM above-ground train was also shut down. Buses were used to move passengers from terminal to terminal.

Houston Airports spokesperson Darian Ward said they began ramping up again at Bush around 10 a.m.

A viewer reported the raised parking ramps at Hobby were frozen.

The airports were running 60 to 70 percent of normal operations by 3 p.m. Friday, Ward said.  She said the automatic people mover train was still down due to ice and buses were being used to move passengers and personnel.

Passengers should call their airline or check flight tracker to check their status.
