I suggest to offer self check in options. Key lock box or smart lock. This allows guests to check in at their convenience without requiring your presence. Provide clear instructions on how to use the system to ensure a smooth arrival experience. It would help as well if you will provide information on local transportation, suck as taxi service, ride sharing apps or any public transportation routes. This can help guests plan their arrival. Hope this helps.
I believe @Charlotte1159 is referring to flight cancelations in NYC airports since yesterday. More than two thousand flights were canceled in two days and people are stranded at airports with no place to go.
