The Asiana Airlines crash continued to cause flight delays at San Francisco International Airport on Monday, but the impact on other Bay Area airports isn't expected to be a problem Tuesday.

SFO's website said the runway where Asiana Flight 214 crashed Saturday "will remain closed for the immediate future" and that the airport is still "experiencing numerous delays and cancellations."

A separate notice on the Federal Aviation Administration's website Monday afternoon said the accident "is causing some arriving flights to be delayed an average of 2 hours and 32 minutes" at SFO.

Both SFO and the federal agency advised passengers to check with their airlines for more detailed information.

Vicki Day, spokeswoman for Mineta San Jose International Airport, said only four planes were shifted to San Jose from SFO on Monday, compared with 21 on the day of the Asiana crash. She added that it was common for a few flights a day to be moved to San Jose from SFO because of bad weather. Day predicted that Tuesday "is probably going to be pretty normal" for Mineta International.

A dozen to 15 flights that had been originally scheduled to land at SFO were rescheduled to land in Oakland on Monday, according to Oakland International Airport spokeswoman Kim Domerofski. She wasn't sure what might happen Tuesday, but added, "We can handle the additional rescheduled flights that are coming our way now" without incurring any flight delays.
