Two of New York City's three major airports are open. Flights are slowly resuming at John F. Kennedy International and Newark Liberty International. LaGuardia is still closed.

Airlines say they are beginning limited service in New York after Hurricane Sandy shut down air travel in the Northeast earlier this week.
