United Airlines flights from Denver to Billings and Bozeman airports were canceled Wednesday due to blizzard conditions that shutdown the Denver International Airport. 

The Denver airport closed all six of its runways Wednesday afternoon, and the roadway going into the airport, Peña Boulevard, was closed to traffic as well after blizzard conditions and winds up to 80 mph hit the airport, according to the Denver National Weather Service. Peña Boulevard reopened just after 7 p.m. Wednesday, according to the DIA twitter. 

The closure of the runways resulted in the cancellation of more than 1,300 flights, including some going into the Billings Logan International Airport and the Bozeman Yellowstone International Airport Wednesday afternoon, according to the flight tracking service Flight Aware.

Bozeman and Billings airports each had three flights canceled flying into Denver, and four coming into their respective airports, according to Flight Aware. 

It's unclear whether flights on Frontier Airlines, also flies from Denver to Bozeman, were affected.

Kevin Ploehn, director of aviation and transit at the Billings Logan International Airport, said it may be a day or so before everything is returned to normal, in a message to the Billings Gazette. 

Its unclear how Wednesday's cancellations and weather will affect Thursday's flights. According to the Billings Airport's website, flights to and from Denver are already canceled for Thursday morning. 

The blizzard warning for Denver is in effect until noon Thursday.
