The whole airport will be closed on Tuesday, for all airlines.
The reports all say Tuesday from 6am for a few hours. Did you see confirmed for Tuesday all day? My flight is scheduled to land Tuesday 5pm

Currently they re saying it will start at 5-6 am so they should be fine. I am worried how long it will last
