TULSA, Oklahoma  —

an Airlines flights from across the U.S. have been diverted to Tulsa International Airport while they wait for severe weather to pass through Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport.

Tulsa International Airport’s main commercial runway is able to accommodate aircraft sizes up to a Boeing 747 making Tulsa International Airport ideal to land large airliners.

Plane being diverted range in size from MD-80, Boeing 737, Airbus A319, Airbus A321 and a Boeing 777-200ER.

The planes come from as far away as London-Heathrow, Los Angeles (LAX), John Wayne Santa Ana, Baltimore-Washington International Airport and Denver International Airport.

Southwest Airlines is also diverting some Boeing 737s to Tulsa because of bad weather conditions at Dallas Love Field.

According to FlightAware, one of the planes is an Alaska Boeing 737 from Seattle-Tacoma International Airport.
