ARLINGTON, Va. - Some airlines are beginning to resume service at the major airports serving Washington and Baltimore after superstorm Sandy.

Limited service was expected to resume Tuesday at Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport. A spokeswoman for Reagan National and Washington Dulles International airports says there are very limited operations in both locations and that each airport had their first arrival earlier in the day Tuesday.

Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority spokeswoman Kimberly Gibbs says it will take several days for the airports to ramp up and return to full service.

No commercial aircraft were left at the airport during the storm. So the airlines must reposition their jets to resume service.

Passengers are being encouraged to check with their airlines before heading to the airport.
