NEWARK - Things are finally getting back to normal at Newark Liberty International Airport, after the latest winter storm canceled several hundred flights out of the area.

According to the FAA, flights into and out the airport are running on time.

Long lines at security checkpoints were also stabilizing as more TSA agents were able to get to work today due to the improving road conditions.

The relentless snow and ice storms this winter have led to the highest number of flight cancellations in more than 25 years.

An analysis by The Associated Press finds that U.S. airlines have canceled more than 75,000 domestic flights since Dec. 1, including roughly 14,000 this week.

Based on information provided by flight tracking website FlightAware.com, that amounts to 5.5 percent of the 1.35 million flights scheduled during that period.
