BUFFALO, NY (WKBW) -- Niagara Frontier Transportation Authority officials say there are no flight delays expected at the Buffalo Niagara International Airport on Thursday due to Air Force One's arrival and departure.

It is expected though that there will be a short window around 12:25 p.m. when President Obama's plane is landing, and again at 3:20 p.m. when the President is scheduled to depart, when no other flights will be allowed in the air.

As for getting to and from the airport on Thursday, it is expected that some roads will be closed because of the President's visit but the secret service is not revealing which roads those will be or when they will be closed. So, anyone traveling to or near the airport on Thursday should be prepared for possible delays or detours.

The Federal Aviation Administration is not allowing private aircraft pilots in the air at all on Thursday within a 10 mile radius of the Buffalo Niagara International Airport. That restriction applies from 11:45 a.m. - 3:45 p.m.
