STERLING, Va. (WJLA) - Runways at Dulles International Airport and Reagan National Airport reopened Friday, one day after the largest snow accumulations to hit Washington in years shut down all traffic in and out of both airports.

But while both airports were fully open and operational, significant delays and cancellations remained Friday as airlines scrambled to rebook passengers and move aircraft into place from other snowbound cities along the East Coast. Officials from the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority said passengers should still check with their airlines before heading to the terminals.

As of 7:50 a.m. Friday, the airport delay and cancellation numbers are:
