Air travelers saw three of every four flights canceled at Pittsburgh International Airport on Tuesday morning with airlines operating on reduced schedules as the former Hurricane Sandy dissipates, according to the flight-tracking service flightstats.com.

The website said airlines scrapped 70 of 93 departing flights, or 75 percent of them, through noon. Airlines canceled 31 of 93 flights scheduled to take off in the afternoon and evening as 1:30 p.m., the website said.

Flights canceled were destined for Baltimore, Boston, Charlotte, Chicago, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Dallas, Denver, Detroit, Fort Lauderdale, Fort Myers, Hartford, Houston, Las Vegas, Miami, Minneapolis, Newark, New York, Orlando, Philadelphia, Phoenix, Raleigh-Durham, San Francisco, Tampa, Toronto and Washington.

Airlines canceled more than 70 flights out of Pittsburgh on Monday.

The Allegheny County Airport Authority advised passengers to confirm the status of their flights before traveling to the airport. Websites and phone numbers for airlines serving Pittsburgh can be found at flypittsburgh.com/airlines.

Hurricane Sandy prompted airlines to cancel more than 16,000 flights in North America since Saturday, flightstats.com said. Philadelphia International Airport had the most cancellations the past two days with more than 1,000 each day, the website said.
