Planes positioned at DIA due to Hurricane Sandy

By  | 

DENVER (AP) -- Airlines have positioned more than two dozen planes at Denver International Airport to help them return to normal service faster after Hurricane Sandy.

Airport officials said about 30 planes parked at DIA overnight Tuesday to prevent them from being stranded on the East Coast. That's three times the number of aircraft that usually park there.

Hurricane Sandy has canceled thousands of flights across the country. About 110 flights were expected to be canceled through Denver on Tuesday, about the same as were scratched on Monday.
