DENVER (AP) - The snow storm moving across Colorado is causing headaches for airport travelers.

Frontier Airlines said they canceled 19 flights in and out of Denver International Airport on Thursday because the airport has been unable to keep enough runways and taxiways open. The airline also said some flights have delayed by as much as four hours.

United Airlines, the dominant carrier at DIA, canceled about half of its flights, which it says is standard procedure during snow storms.

Airport Spokesman Chuck Cannon says DIA crews are keeping up with snow removal and that the airport was up to 64 arrivals per hour by midmorning. He says that's about double the number from hours earlier.

Two east-west runways are closed and the remaining four are open.
