COLONIE – A number of flights remain canceled at the Albany International Airport, but some air traffic will begin to resume through the day.

Air travel resumed Tuesday morning at Albany International Airport, except for US Airways whose flights will not resume until Wednesday.

As for New York City airports, Laguardia, Newark and JFK remain closed.

All travelers should check with their airline.

Travelers should contact their airlines or check the airport website to determine if their flights are scheduled to depart.

Meanwhile, Amtrak trains traveling south from the station in Rensselaer are still suspended. Trains are running north to Toronto.

The railroad said in a statement that Amtrak crews are currently inspecting tunnels, tracks, equipment and stations in the Northeast to assess damage from Hurricane Sandy and are beginning to make repairs to sections of Amtrak-owned track. Amtrak said it is also working closely with other railroads on whose tracks Amtrak trains operate to determine when passenger train service can resume.

Most Amtrak service on the East Coast as far north as Boston and as far south as Raleigh, N.C. remains suspended and stations along those routes are closed.

Megabus has many cancellations including NY to Saratoga, NY to Boston, and NY to Buffalo. For a complete list of information from Megabus, click here.
