2 thousand 600 flights canceled on the first working day

More than 2,600 flights could not be made on the first working day of the new year in the USA due to increased COVID-19 events and adverse weather conditions.

According to the flight-tracking website “FlightAware.com”, 2,600 flights could not be performed in the USA today, with the prestige of midday, and 3,100 flights were delayed.

Officials noted that there were cancellations or delays due to the heavy snowfall that affected the eastern and central parts of the country and the lack of workers as a result of the airline company employees catching the Omicron variant of COVID-19.

Southwest Airlines Spokesperson Brad Hawkins announced that they have canceled approximately 575 flights, which corresponds to 15 percent of the entire daily flight schedule, until noon today.
