Chaos continues at US airports with more than 2,600 flights canceled

FlightAware says more than 2,600 flights in the United States and 4,600 flights worldwide were canceled on Saturday.

Air travel in the United States continued to be severely affected on Saturday, and severe weather in some parts of the country added to the impact of the massive increase in COVID-19 infections triggered by the Omigron variant.

According to the watchdog FlightAware, 2,604 flights were canceled in the United States, and more than half of the 4,529 flights worldwide were canceled after 4:30 pm (2130 GMT).

In addition, 3,447 domestic flights were delayed on Saturday, bringing the total to 7,602 flights worldwide during the day.

The most affected American airline was Southwest, which had to cancel 13 percent of its flight schedule, the site said.

In the United States, Chicago airports were particularly affected by the harsh weather, with snowstorms expected until Saturday afternoon and evening.

The global aviation industry is still reeling from the highly contagious Omigron variant.

Many pilots, flight attendants and other staff did not go to work because they were isolated after being exposed to Covit-19 or having contact with an infected person.

Airlines around the world have canceled about 7,500 flights over the Christmas weekend.
