A plane was de-iced at Logan Airport on Thursday.

Planes are taking off and landing at Logan International Airport this morning, but airlines are still cancelling hundreds of flights as a result of the nor’easter that blew through the region Thursday and Friday.

More than 300 flights have been dropped at Logan today, according to Orbitz, a travel planning web site.

Ed Freni, director of aviation at the Massachusetts Port Authority, which operates Logan, said the airport ran 534 flights yesterday and kept two runways open throughout the storm. By 12:30 p.m. Friday, Logan was ready for an influx of arrivals and departures.

“All our runways are bare pavement,” Freni said. “We’re ready to go, anxious to get the planes back in here, get back to normalcy.”

Peter Pan Bus Lines, meanwhile, had hoped to reopen its routes along the Boston-New York-Hartford corridor running by midday, but those services remained shut down because of weather and road conditions, the company said. The Springfield-based company has also canceled several trips scheduled for Saturday.

Amtrak said its Acela Express and Northeast Regional services will operate between Boston and Washington, but with fewer trains running those routes.
