More than 580 flights have been canceled at Logan International Airport on Saturday as Boston prepares for a potentially “historic snowstorm” this weekend.

By Friday, many airlines had canceled 100 percent of their Boston flights for Saturday, including American Airlines, United Airlines, Southwest Airlines, and Frontier Airlines, according to FlightAware.com, a website which tracks delayed and canceled flights. JetBlue, Logan Airport’s largest carrier, had canceled 96 percent of its flights.

Logan Airport posted an advisory on social media ahead of the storm, warning customers about potential storm-related delays and cancellations on Saturday and Sunday and advising travelers to check their airline’s flight status.

Many airlines, such as JetBlue, Delta Air Lines, and American Airlines, issued travel waivers ahead of the storm.

JetBlue will waive change/cancel fees and fare differences for customers traveling Friday through Saturday to/from the following cities: Boston and Worcester; Hartford, Conn.; Providence, R.I.; Newark, N.J.; Albany, Buffalo, New York, Rochester, Syracuse, and Westchester County, all in N.Y.; Burlington, Vermont; Charlotte and Raleigh/Durham in N.C.; Richmond, Va.; Washington, D.C.; and Philadelphia.

“Customers may rebook their flights for travel through Tuesday, Feb. 1, 2022, online in the Manage Flights section of jetblue.com prior to the departure time of their originally scheduled flight,” JetBlue wrote on its website. Customers with cancelled flights may also opt for a refund to the original form of payment. Original travel must have been booked on or before Wednesday, Jan. 26, 2022.”
