The delays and cancellations mostly affect travel to Washington D.C., Philadelphia, and New York City, according to the airport's website.
Travellers are being advised to check their flight's status before leaving for the airport.
Seven U.S. states have declared a state of emergency because of the storm, while nine people have been reported killed in accidents and parts of Washington were coated with nearly 60 centimetres of drifting snow.
More than 50 flights Saturday have also been delayed or cancelled at Pearson International Airport in Toronto.
