NEW YORK (AP) — Some limited air travel is expected to return to the New York City metro area on Wednesday following the superstorm.

The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey says John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York and Newark International Airport in New Jersey will open at 7 a.m. with limited service. They were closed in the storm.

It's unclear what carriers will have flights operating.

The Port Authority says some carriers will be landing planes with no passengers at JFK starting Tuesday night to be prepared for flights the next day.

New York's LaGuardia Airport remains closed.
