"We are monitoring the storm. We are also talking to other airports to see how they've been affected by the storm. Then the airlines are working to make sure they have got their aircraft stationed in airports away from the storm so they can continue to fly to other cities that aren't affected," Laura Coale, a DIA spokesperson said.

Airport officials said Monday the canceled flights are among 1,700 arrivals and departures the airport handles every day.

On Monday, 65 arrivals and 60 departures were canceled. For Tuesday, 60 arrivals and 50 departures were canceled.

Hurricane Sandy has grounded thousands of flights across the country, threatening to bring a near halt to air travel for at least two days in a key region for both domestic and international flights.
