January 26, 2015 (CNNMoney) — The Northeast is bracing for a storm that could throw off travel plans not only on the east coast, but around the nation.

A potentially “historic and destructive” nor’easter is expected to plow north through New Jersey, New York and Massachusetts — including New York City and Boston — starting Monday and could cripple travel in the region. Over the weekend, authorities issued winter storm and blizzard watches and forecasts called for between one and two feet of snow.

Storm of that size would likely shut down arrivals and departures from important airports, causing a ripple effect. If you’re traveling this week, here’s what you need to know:

American Airlines and U.S. Airways: The airlines will let customers flying to or from two dozen Northeast airports rebook reservations made for Monday and Tuesday without a fee. The cities include Albany, Baltimore, Boston, New York, Newark, Philadelphia and Washington, D.C. More from American. More from U.S. Airways.

Delta Air Lines: Customers headed to or from airports along the east coast on Monday or Tuesday may rebook flights with no extra fee. More from Delta.

JetBlue: Customers may rebook travel into or out of certain cities in the Northeast for Monday and Tuesday. More from Jet Blue.

Southwest Airlines: Customers arriving to or departing from the Washington, D.C. area on Monday may rebook without a fee. Customers in the Northeast may make similar adjustments to their travel plans on for both Monday and Tuesday. More from Southwest.

Virgin America: Travelers headed into or out of Boston, New York, Newark or Washington airports on Tuesday may change their reservation without fees. More from Virgin America.
