NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) — Tennessee Titans fans planning to fly non-stop to Kansas City ahead of the weekend AFC Championship game were left grounded Friday.
Nashville International Airport announced both non-stop flights Friday from Music City to Kansas City were cancelled amid wintry conditions. The Southwest flights were scheduled to depart at 3:30 p.m. and 8:05 p.m.
Flights were also scheduled to arrive in Nashville from Kansas City around 9 a.m. and 12:35 p.m., but those were also cancelled.
Kansas City International Airport closed its airfield twice Friday morning due to icy conditions that caused a plane to slide off the taxiway.
UPDATE: Kansas City International Airport tweeted out that the airfield has reopened.
The Titans will play the Kansas City Chiefs Sunday afternoon in Kansas City. Kickoff is scheduled for 2:05 p.m.
